Today Shadow, Wilma, My Mom, and I Adventured to the Thetfield Center Covered Bridge, and the Covered Bridge Falls in Thetfield Center, Vermont. The Thetfield Center Covered Bridge crosses the Ompompanoosuc River. It frames the Covered Bridge Falls, also referred to as the Thetfield Center Falls. The Falls is a cascade falls approximately twenty five feet in height.
We had a picturesque Adventure to the Thetfield Center Covered Bridge. The Bridge and Falls were the first stop on our day of Adventures in Vermont. We parked along the bridge and hopped out to take some photographs. It was challenging to get good views of the bridge , quite simple, and somewhat dull in appearance. However we sauntered to the other side and back, attempting to peer down the River. As we were finishing our visit, someone driving through told us about a side trail to enable water views of the bridge. I was quite thrilled at this information. We jumped in the car and drove enthusiastically past the River and down to the left where we found a parking area for a “trailhead” and located the path to the River.
The trail was short with some uneven spots. We soon arrived at the rocks, and were pleasantly surprised at a completely different perspective. The Thetfield Center Falls flowed below the Bridge into the Ompompanoosuc River. It was a a lovely picture, rusty colored bridge, blue sky, and rushing water. Shadow immediately located a pool of water for a dip, while I jumped around the rocks with Wilma, heading a bit closer for a close-up. The rocks were quite slippery, but somehow I managed to catch myself before almost crashing on several occasions. It was astonishing to see this location was actually the same bridge. We spent time photographing, and appreciating the moments. I think the Thetfield Center Bridge (side-view) was one of my favorite bridges. So thankful for a kind stranger to give us this tip (Rating: 4.5).
