If you head downtown, head to the bridge and grab a pic on this classic Vermont bridge. Just a fun little place to stop by.

This isn't too far out of Stowe to get to and is worth it if you like covered bridges and/or ghost stories. We didn't find any ghosts or weird energy but we were there in the daylight so who knows what comes out at night!

We didn't see any ghosts to my companions disappointment but it is a beautiful spot. The bridge and the lovely river running beneath it create a wonderful location for photos. It is just a short drive off of Rt 100 to Stowe so if you are in the area, do make the effort to stop by and see the bridge.

It's a small bridge, but the many and varied stories around it make for an imaginative visit. Covered bridges in Vermont are just lovely.

A typical Vermont covered bridge, quaint and a nice example of its type. Drive through from the main road and park in the little turn-around. The most probable story is that a high school student in the 70's wrote an fictional essay about Emily and it was picked up as "fact". Still, a nice photogenic stop and fairly close to... More

Stopped to see Emily. Sadly nothing happened but I got some good shots of the bridge with the fall colors.
