Vermont Roads - Stowe


This contrived mini-covered bridge ("Stowe Walkway Bridge," semi-officially) has seen better days. It's on VT 108 NB entering downtown, and not too long ago, the cursive "Stowe" was intact. Time for rehab!

A panorama to the east from Stowe Hollow Rd. south of town, looking into Putnam State Forest at the Worcester Mountains.

This bridge is beautiful, but has a troubled past. Officially the Gold Brook Bridge, the local name is Emily's Bridge, after the ghost that reportedly haunts it. As is typical, there are varying stories behind what happened to Emily to cause her to haunt the bridge, and equally varying tales of what happens when "she" comes to "haunt" the bridge. All I know is that nothing happened when I was there.

Turned around, facing north.

A couple of views of the west side of the bridge.

While I'm under there, here's the brook itself. Emily may or may not be down here as well.
