Brilliant Bridge

This weekend has been a series of rainy fall days, the mist and cloud cover punctuated with brief downpours and temperatures hovering around 14 degrees. During one of the breaks in the rain we got out for a quick walk on the recently restored Brilliant Bridge, built by the Doukhobors in 1913 for $60,000, and operated as a road bridge until 1966, when the replacement bridge was built. See some of the photos below.

As Robyn said, “It is amazing how wood and steel can be so beautiful”.

One thought to “Brilliant Bridge”

  1. These bridges are gorgeous. Have you ever been up to NH to look at their amazing covered bridges up there? I spent some of my childhood up in New England and the covered bridges up there are picturesque and gorgeous.
