Greyt Getaways • Hayden Covered Bridge

When we left Salem, the sun was shining, about 50 miles later, the fog had settled in. We took a turn onto a road that we had never traveled before and finding a new covered bridge was a complete surprise.

Barns lined each side of the bridge. The larger of the two had definitely seen better days.

For miles, the Alsea River was lined with empty boat trailers. Rumor on the river, they were fishin' for steelhead.

Built in 1918, the Hayden Bridge is one of the older covered bridges in Oregon. Spanning 91' it is the last remaining covered bridge spanning the Alsea River.

Flo wandered around for awhile, but like all of the other greyhounds, quickly grew bored with the covered bridge scene.

Ready to hit the beach, she walked down the road to car.

This was the last thing we saw before we left Hayden Bridge.
