On our way back to the Inn, we stopped for some coffee/chai and an afternoon snack. I picked up a magazine about Stowe. Since it was such a beautiful day, we decided to sit outside to enjoy our snack and read. The magazine mentioned a covered bridge less than two miles away. This is our fourth or fifth visit to Stowe – How did we not know there was a covered bridge in town. Definitely had to check it out.
This bridge is known as “Emily’s Bridge” due to the fact that it is haunted by a ghost named Emily. There are many sad stories of how Emily died on the bridge.
Many people who have visited the bridge have experienced disturbing paranormal activity.
If you would like to know more just google Emily’s Bridge, Stowe, Vermont
It’s Vermont so of course I need at least one picture of a covered bridge. This bridge is just up the road from the Stone Hill Inn and just a short walk from a parking area
Buskirks Bridge – $25 dollars fine for driving on the bridge faster than a walk.
Today we decided to drive part of the Kancamagus Highway. The highway is a 34 mile scene highway that stretches from Lincoln to Conway, New Hampshire. We only drove part of the highway. The views were just beautiful

Henry Covered Bridge was completely rebuilt in 1989 on the location where Ethan Allan and the Green Mountain Boys confronted and sent home a NY sheriff who had come to remove the existing landowners.
Our last day in Vermont – we drove to Woodstock and walked around town and then went to Simon Pierce for lunch. We were surprised that there was a 45 minute wait. That gave us time to look around the store, watch the glass blowing and then take some pictures. This covered bridge was damaged in Tropical Storm Irene last September. The bridge is going to be longer and higher and is supposed to be done by December. We could still see evidence of Irene in many places.
