October 19, 2019 – Brookdale Bridge – Vermont

This past weekend we had a getaway to Vermont, which involved many Adventures, most of which I will blog about.  We stayed in a cabin in the woods, and due to no wifi I am far behind on my blog, therefore posting much later then preferred.  However, definitely some amazing locations that I am excited to share.  I now will continue our Vermont Adventures from the weekend…in no particular order.

This past weekend Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to the Brookdale Bridge in Stowe, Vermont.  (Also referred to as the Brook Road or White Caps Bridge).  The Brookdale Bridge is a “stringer” covered bridge, therefore labeling it a “non-authentic” covered bridge due to its structural system.  The Brookdale Bridge crosses the West Branch Waterbury River.

We had a fun Adventure to the Brookdale Bridge, ending the first day of our Fall getaway.  I found the Brookdale Bridge after studying a tourist map that we had obtained along the way.  The map was easy to follow, guiding us down Brook Road, and directly to the Bridge.  The Brookdale Bridge was small in scale, and rustic red in hue.  We followed the adjacent Stowe Recreation Path briefly, before heading off the trail over to the River’s edge.  The location was peaceful, not a soul in site.  Shadow and Wilma enjoyed exploring, and posed grandly for some photographs  And although my research later indicated that the Brookdale Bridge was not an official covered bridge, I still could not resist sharing our Adventure to the Brookdale Bridge (Rating:  4).
