Newport Covered Bridge

Newport Covered Bridge

Posted on October 9, 2012

Last weekend, after leaving the Newport Hill Climb, we visited the nearby covered bridge.

I had previously visited this bridge, but not for about 5 years or so. I wanted to take better pictures, with my newer, and better camera.

I also wanted to Waymark this bridge and it’s Historic Marker.
