Clarkson Covered Bridge: Cullman, AL

I've had some serious computer issues since my last post. . .both on the job and at home. I miss the good old days: pre-cell phones and pre-computers. I don't sit well and waiting for on-line assistance and for technicians to show up made me nuts!

So I took a break and headed to Cullman County, north of Birmingham to get away from the weight of technical babble, hardware and technicians. Last summer I watched a broadcast on our local PBS station highlighting all of the covered bridges constructed at the turn-of-the-century and still standing throughout the state. It piqued my curiosity. I had never seen a covered bridge and it immediately became a must see on my ever growing list of things to do.

Clarkson Covered Bridge (sometimes called Legg Bridge) is located in Cullman County. I was in awe of the structure. To think that it had been built by hand, one log at a time, was amazing. I took a lot of pictures and can't possibly post all of them but I hope that the images which I've selected will give you an idea of it's structural beauty and that of the adjoining grist mill. Lovely.
