Although other countries have some covered bridges, nowhere else are they a real feature of the rural landscape like in the USA. Covered bridges in other countries are made of stone, brick, bamboo and tropical grasses, but in the US, the material of choice is wood. That's what makes them so appealing and so fitting in their lovely settings over rivers, ponds, streams and creeks.

Via Harris Covered Bridge- Oregon
Such a pretty setting. Because by definition covered bridges are over water, it's rare to find one that couldn't be described as scenic.
