Grays River Covered Bridge

Russ and I decided to forgo breakfast this morning and go and search for the Covered Bridge in Rosburg, Washington. (We saw a sign that said that the name of the town was Rosburg not Roseburg). The map showed that it was about 30 miles from the campground and it is the road that we will be taking on Thursday so this was a good chance to see how we would be traveling. We knew that we would not be able to take the motor home across the bridge so that is why we decided on a day trip.

Information on the bridge:

Name: Grays River Covered Bridge

Built: 1905

Span: 158 feet

It is the oldest remaining covered bridge in the northwest and the only one of its kind in the state of Washington.

This afternoon Russ and I walked down to the beach as he wanted to try and dig up some clams. We had no luck in finding any. The afternoon has proved to be the best we have seen since last Tuesday. It warmed up to about 65 but the air is still a biting cold. I was able to sit out in the sun for a while.
