Covered Bridge over Nisqually River at Elbe

This photo of the covered bridge across the Nisqually River at Elbe was taken by Steve Burwash. At the far end of the bridge is his family.

The photo was taken probably in the early 60s. The “cover” of the bridge is no longer standing.

    This is a great shot of the covered bridge over the Nisqually River at Park Junction (not Elbe). The caption says the bridge is no longer standing, but that’s not entirely true. The covered section of the bridge was replaced with a deck plate girder structure in the late 1970’s. The bridge is still in service and is used regularly by the Mt. Rainier Railroad & Logging Museum’s excursion trains.
