“Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade.”
~ Charles Dickens
~ 1812-1870The spring melt is on at Geiger’s Covered Bridge as the late March sun melts the snow off the roof a few days after a snowstorm on the first full day of spring March 21 brought more than a foot of snow to the region.
Geiger’s Covered Bridge is an historic wooden covered bridge in North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. It is a 112-foot-long Burr Truss bridge, constructed in 1860. It has vertical plank siding and an entry portal of stepped square planks. It crosses the Jordan Creek and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. It can be accessed from The Covered Bridge Trail of the Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.
