July weather in Pennsylvania.

This is Colvin covered bridge in Bedford county, spanning Shawnee creek. It is a multiple king-post truss built around 1880, and still open to road traffic.

What the picture doesn't show is the steel beams under the deck that actually carry the live load.

An interesting presentation...of a handy place to rest from the rain if hiking!

These bridges are so distinctive. I would love to be able to visit some one day.
