Beautiful day for a drive. The sun was shining. Perfect.
First stop. The Floating Bridge on Sunset Lake in Brookfield. The bridge, originally built in 1820, is closed to vehicle traffic but foot traffic is allowed. There is only one other floating bridge in the US which is located in Washington state. The Vermont FLoating Bridge was rebuilt in 1978. It's deck was held up by fiberglass flotation barrels filled with styrofoam (that are now waterlogged). This rare bridge is scheduled to be restored in the summer of 2014!

Next stop on the agenda, Quechee Gorge. Busy place today.
Then we revisited the Taftsville Covered Bridge which was closed for repair on our July 14th visit.

See what 2 million dollars will get you! (It was a very busy bridge today. Hard to get a good shot.)

Stopped at the Taftsville Country Store across from the bridge for a quick drink.
