A Covered Bridge to the New Year

A new year, a new covered bridge.

For this New Year’s Day sketch I headed upstream on the San Lorenzo to the town of Felton. The San Lorenzo River may be the only river in California that has two covered bridges spanning it’s flow.

The Felton Covered Bridge was complete 1893, 20 years after the Powder Works Bridge (Paradise Park) and is believed to be the tallest covered bridge in the country. This bridge stood as the only entry to the town of Felton for 45 years until it was replaced by a concrete bridge. In was retired from active service in 1937 and became a pedestrian bridge.

Happy 2016!
