Spring At Geiger's Covered Bridge ...




"On the first warm day in May
I hope you'll come a-callin' ...
We'll climb the hill ...
where all is still ..."
                                    ~ "The First Warm Day In May"
                                                   ~ recorded by Rosemary Clooney
                                                                            ~ 1952

A sun dappled afternoon at Geiger's Covered Bridge is the perfect
place to spend the first warm day in May. This is one of my very favorite
places to be and to photograph. There's a simple beauty and tranquility here 
in the stillness and I love to capture that essence in my photography. 

Geiger's 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 Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

A Summer Place ...


"There's a summer place ..."
                                         ~ "Theme From A Summer Place"
                                                                              ~1959

You can almost hear the strains of "Theme From A Summer Place"
on a perfect August evening at Manassas Guth Covered Bridge,
South Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. The historic wooden bridge that crosses the Jordan Creek was constructed in 1858 and rebuilt in 1882. It is a 
108-foot long Burr Truss bridge with vertical siding. It was placed on the
National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
