Brookfield, Vermont

Brookfield's main attraction in its floating bridge, which spans Sunset Lake. The original bridge was built in 1820. "It was built this way because the lake is too deep for traditional pilings" (Wikipedia). Due to a failure of the flotation system, the seventh bridge closed in 2008 and the eighth bridge opened just last month. We passed several fisher men/women as we drove over the bridge.

A wide wooden sidewalk runs along each side
of the bridge where several people conjugated
to fish.
