“The summer night is like a perfection of thought.”
~ Wallace Stevens
~ American modernist poet born
in Reading, Pennsylvania
~ Pulitzer Prize Winner for Poetry for his “Collected Poems” in 1955
The warm air melds with the chirping of birds and crickets, the only sounds in the still beauty of a July evening at Schlicher Covered Bridge in summer, my most favorite of seasons.
Schlicher Covered Bridge is an historic wooden covered bridge located in North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. It is a 108-foot-long, Burr Truss bridge that crosses the Jordan Creek and was constructed in 1882. It has vertical plank siding and a gable roof. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. It underwent needed renovations a few years ago.
It can be accessed from the Covered Bridge Trail at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.
