Larkin’s Covered Bridge (1854)

Larkin’s Covered Bridge (1854)

Eagle, Chester County [38-15-11]

I stopped at the nearby Target to pickup some quick supplies, and then jumped in the car, and started up the GPS.

A day or two earlier, I had spent some time on Google Maps and my Reference sites, entering in GPS coordinates.

After everything was up and running, I looked up the nearest bridge, and Larkin’s was the first on the list.

As I headed North on Route 100 from the Route 113 intersection (Uwchlan Ave), without issue, but as I followed the GPS, I quickly found that the map on the GPS, was not up to date, and I first ended up doing a circle.

On the second try, I looked at the roads, and used the GPS as a guide, and finally made it to the bridge.

I pulled over as close to the bridge as possible, and grabbed my gear.

I free-handed this shot…

Larkin’s does not have car or truck access, and can only be crossed via foot or bicycle, which made it all the more easy to photograph.

So I broke out the tripod, and was easily able to capture this…

From here, I stepped back some, and got this long view…

I moved to the other side of the bridge, to where the cat o’ nine tails are growing, looked back and captured this…

Moving back to my car, I decided to go again go underneath the bridge…

I finished up, and got to my car, packed up, and headed on.
