This Spring the Harmon and Trusal Covered Bridges will both be receiving new roofs. The photo shows the early work at the Trusal Covered Bridge, Indiana County's oldest covered bridge.
The roof is the most important part of preserving a covered bridge. Early bridge builders found that keeping the bridge trusses free of weather and rain was the best way to prolong the life of the bridge.

Tiny Four-toed Salamanders will keep watch over their eggs until they hatch. They will also tend to the eggs of other Four-toed Salamanders that lay eggs in communal nests. The preferred nest habitat is a sphagnum moss hummock where the eggs wlll be protected and kept moist. After hatching the young larvae fall to the water below and begin their life in the wetland pool.
