August 2009, WORLDS LONGEST COVERED BRIDGE AND BIGGEST AXE
New Brunswick is the home of the worlds longest covered bridge. I thought they were covered to shed the snow. This may be one of the reasons, but it turns out the prime reason is to protect the structural wood beams from rotting.
Just up the road from the bridge is the Covered Bridge Potato Chip Company. New Brunswick is a major producer of potatoes and this company is a third generation operation producing chips using the old fashioned kettle method.
We could not pass up a photo op with the worlds largest axe. We are the ant sized creatures under the head.
