When the Stars rain on the Sun over the Covered Bridge
If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he’s dead, then maybe he was a great man.James Dean
This is the Gold Brook Covered Bridge at sunset in Vermont. A covered bridge is a timber-truss bridge with a roof and siding which, in most covered bridges, create an almost complete enclosure. The purpose of the covering is to protect the wooden structural members from the weather. They are pretty amazing to see, mostly because of the construction and how they had to build them from tree to final product with primitive tools. These bridges and structures like them represent the progress made my the settlers of linking cities together in order to mature trade routes. As we can see in modern times with modern tools, these roads have substantially changed to take over much of the land of the States.
Beware when the rain dance ends that the rivers don’t flow over and destroy what you have taken from the lands.
