Postcard #96 (Vail Covered Bridge)

Last week while in Vail, Colorado my wife and I made a special trek to the covered bridge where we got married many snowfalls ago. I now call this the mysterious hidden covered bridge in Vail as we had a little trouble finding the bridge and a dozen or so locals told us there was only one covered bridge in the center of Vail Village.

I was resigned to the fact the bridge I was looking for could have been torn down as Vail expanded over the years. But as it turns out, each of the people that I asked was actually less than a 100 yards from the bridge. Part of what now obscures the bridge on the eastern part of Vail is it sits behind a hotel so access to it is now limited.

But it’s still there and looks just as quaint and romantic as I remember it back in the November of 1985. I don’t know if the bridge has ever been featured in a movie or TV program but it’s a beauty. And you could house a large crew less than a minute walk away. Remember me in the credits.
