Good work... Greetings, Paty.
Naw, I don't have underneath photos of any covered bridges I took, just the inside and exteriors. Most of them are on my personal website.
Ah....I do believe the ones here are done by farmers (with a similar amount of spare time come the depths of winter).

Thank you. :0) Unfortunately...when I drove Skyline Drive last year, the southern portion of Shenandoah National Park was foggy. I was able to get photos from overlooks on the east side of Skyline Drive but not the west side. Hopefully, I can get back up there later this year and catch those.
The town is also called Richmond upon Thames or Richmond-Surrey. It's located about 10 miles west of London. Paved Court is a small alleyway full of businesses and some homes which is situated near the Richmond Green and Thames River. I've never been to the U.K. myself. My mother and grandfather went there a few years ago. She took the pictures throughout southern England. This is probably the best looking one so far.
I probably should point out which is which. Big Tom is in the right foreground, with Balsam Cone in the middle and Cattail Peak beyond that. In the far left background behind Cattail Peak is Potato Hill. These are as viewed from the summit of Mount Craig.
Yeah, it's in the Great Dismal Swamp. It's one of many which were used during the logging days of years past. Today, these are occasionally used by park staff and researchers for swamp access. Hikers should remain on the ditch trails so as not to get lost in the swamp, which has happened a few times to some of the curious. Not all the bridges are in the best of shape, as they have been left to the elements. Oh yeah, I saw a couple black bears crossing Williamson Ditch while I was on my way back to the trailhead. To point out where these locations are, Williamson Ditch runs east from Jericho Ditch just to the north of where that point for the bridge is on the map. The Jericho Ditch Trailhead is on the other side of that point where a five points intersection is located. The other photo I just posted, the one of East Ditch, is the longest trail in Great Dismal Swamp at eleven miles. It runs from the northern portion of the swamp south to Lake Drummond.
The work on the McIntyre Blast Furnace is part of a restoration venture given through a grant by the State of New York for the Tahawus Tract historic preservation project.
Great stuff, as usual!
Makes me long for a road trip!
