Wintry Scene with the Gallon House Bridge
Winter weather strayed from the higher elevations of the Cascades and visited the Willamette Valley this past week. We got snow (we're used to rain). This aerial photo shows the countryside with the Gallon House covered bridge in the lower right foreground.
Built in 1916, the 84-foot-long (26 m) bridge derives its name from the prohibition era when it was a meeting place for bootleggers and moonshiners. Gallon House Bridge is about 2 miles (3 km) north-northwest of the city of Silverton west of Oregon Route 214 on Gallon House Road.
