The Cox Farm Covered Bridge is one that I pass quite often. Yesterday, I finally stopped to take a few photos.
This bridge is a rare example of a Kingpost truss. Built in 1940, it is much newer than most covered bridges. It is rare in that it is still functioning as a truss. Most covered bridges have been retrofitted with steel stringers. The bridge was built out of wood due to steel shortages leading up to World War II. It is also noteworthy for being painted white, since most covered bridges are either red or unpainted.
It was a beautiful fall day in Pennsylvania. I so enjoyed driving through the hills…the leaves almost gone…hints of winter on its way…breathing in and cherishing the simple things in life. Take a better look at this photo…see the horses in the distance?…just one of those moments that I had to say, “thank you Lord, for giving me the gift of ‘this very moment’.”
Praying that you, too, will have moments to cherish the ‘little things’.
