We waited all week for a nice day to drive around (in the Tahoe) and look at some of the covered bridges here in Oregon. When you think of "covered bridges," what do you think of? The average person may say "bridges in PA or on the East Coast." But, no -- here in Oregon, there are 51 covered bridges, some of these bridges date back to the mid-1800s. Jerry asked a guy why did they cover the bridges? He was told that, when they were built back then, they covered them to protect the wood decking on the bridge from the sun, rain and elements which could ruin them. As you will see by the pictures, these bridges are way too small for an RV our size to cross.
There is actually a Covered Bridge Tour Route one could follow. We didn't exactly follow the Tour Route -- but did get to see three different bridges here in Linn County, outside of Albany, Oregon.
