Americana Postcard ...


“Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life.”
                                       ~ Mark Twain
                                            (Samuel Clemens)
                                              ~ 1835-1910
              
Sunset is on the doorstep of a late February day as a pickup truck prepares to drive over Wehr’s Covered Bridge in a scene that depicts an Americana Postcard.

Wehr’s Covered Bridge is an historic wooden covered bridge located in South Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. It is a three span, 117-foot-long, Burr Truss bridge, constructed in 1841. It has horizontal siding and a gable roof. It crosses the Jordan Creek and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. The nearby Wehr’s Dam was built in 1904.

Perched At Wehr's Dam ...


This Great Blue Heron may well be contemplating how fast the summer flew by while perched at the historic Wehr's Dam on a late September afternoon.
The dam, built in 1904, is next to Wehr's Covered Bridge, which dates back to 1841, at Covered Bridge Park, Orefield, Pennsylvania.
