June 7, 2020 – Bissell Bridge – Massachusetts

Yesterday Wilma and I Adventured to the Bissell Covered Bridge in Charlemont, Massachusetts.  The Bridge crosses the Mill Brook.  It was built in the 1800’s and most recently rebuilt in 1995.  There is a wooden viewing area near the Bridge.

We had a peaceful Adventure to the Bissell Covered Bridge.  We found the Bridge in a quiet area, but yet quickly noted the high speed of the cars speeding through.  Therefore we did not walk through the bridge, but yet made sure to explore on each side.  The bridge was a natural wooden color, and was modern in style.  One thing that was unique about this bridge was that there was a wooden viewing area adjacent to the bridge, and overlooking the River and dam.  It was a fun feature that we have only seen at several other bridges.

It was challenging to photograph the entire bridge due to the angles and access to the River’s edge, however I captured it in parts.  For some reason today’s visit made me wonder what Wilma was thinking – I was excited to be at the Bridge and stretch our legs, while did she think we never arrived anywhere due to the brief journey outside of the car??  The strange things that I think about (haha)!  So glad we could visit yet another Covered Bridge today (Rating:  4).
