"An early morning walk is a blessing
for the whole day."
~ Henry David Thoreau
The words of Thoreau seem to fill the air
just after sunrise on a chilly October morning at the historic
Wehr's Covered Bridge, Orefield, Pennsylvania.
The Jordan Creek spills over Wehr's Dam, built in 1904, to flow beneath
the covered bridge, creating a picturesque autumn postcard.
Wehr's Covered Bridge is a wooden covered bridge in South Whitehall Township.
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.
