Ruby Tuesday - Cornwall crossing

Covered bridge in Cornwall, Connecticut. Photo by Patti, March 2013
Ruby Tuesday 2 returns and the mere proviso of a lot or a little red is all we need. Today, Patti supplies this picture from March of the covered bridge in West Cornwall Connecticut. Crossing the Housatonic River and opened in 1841, it is one of three in Litchfield County. It actually is in use today, it being CT Route 128 - and it has had a steel frame added in 1973 for strength. It is however only one lane - so having a working horn (and not afraid to use it :) on your vehicle helps too. The barn red paint adds a period charm - and meets the requirement for RT2!

Hope the snow's gone by now, Ralph, looks so cold!

Like the barn's ruby paint!

Great Covered bridge shot. I'd actually never heard about covered bridges before the movie with Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood came.Now, I see romance and beauty whenever I spot a picture of covered bridges.
Thanks for sharing this specific piece of American heritage this Tuesday.

I have got to make a trip to New England and experience crossing a covered bridge. Nicely captured.

Beautiful photo Ralph! Back here the temp is very high and the heat is terrible. If only we could have some of that snow. :)

Happy RT2!

Covered bridges have always fascinated me - ever since seeing the old movie "Harvest Home" with Bette Davis! Thanks to the movie, i associate the bridge with deep mystery! Great photo!
