Scary at night but don't let that deter you . There is a sign that states under surveillance camera .A monument to another time. Beautiful river beneath. Especially lovely on fall

A very popular bridge to visit. There were two groups taking their Christmas card photos and then lots of people enjoying a mild November afternoon.

This place has easy access and is easy to find. Great photo ops! You can find it very easy in Google Maps on Waterworks Road which is about 10 minutes outside the main street in Gettysburg.

My family and I like to go to this bridge because it is so beautiful. The water is so peaceful to listen to. Great place to get nature photos.

This beautiful covered bridge is off the beaten track, but google maps will get you there. I was lucky enough to get there early in the morning and enjoyed the tranquility of the peaceful setting for this well maintained bridge.

Historic bridge is a nice spot to sit with lunch or just relax away from the hubub of Gettysburg and the battlefields...
