Covered Bridge: Elizabethton
The boys and I drove over to Elizabethton, TN, while we were visiting family and walked around the Covered Bridge. Yup. That is the name of the bridge over the Doe River that is covered. It’s not hard to find once you get there. It’s the only covered bridge in town. The bridge is now a “walking bridge” since no vehicles are allowed, including skateboards or bicycles.
Of course, no town is complete without a pointy yet pointless object conveniently placed for all to see.
This is the dam right below the covered bridge. They didn’t officially name it, but I’m guessing if they did, it would be called The Dam. You can see from the sign on the dam that it’s a non-walking dam.
This is the “uncovered bridge” just down stream from the Covered Bridge. It is both a walking bride and a driving bridge. So you can use your skateboards and bicycles on it.
