This bridge, dating from 1903, has been closed since 1987. To prevent access, steel plates were welded across the entrances. We cycled down to the entry hoping to get a good view, but unfortunately there was no good prospect. We got one the next day from the other side of the river.

North (Hunt) Vernon Cemetery
We stopped at this cemetery about 8 miles south of Brattleboro. The old slate tombstones with the semicircle on top are usually the most interesting.

The third state in our 2-day tour. We didn't stop at the "Welcome to Vermont" sign--a clear oversight!

We finally got to see the bridge, a day after being stopped at the steel barrier at the western end.
