11 Adorable Quebec "Covered Bridges" You Should Go See Before They're Gone

Covered bridges are simply adorable.

They may be old, impractical, made of wood, and they look like they could collapse at any moment. And yet then scenery just wouldn't be the same without them.

The whole purpose of covering the bridge was to protect the structure of the bridge. (Plus in Canada it kept them clear of snow.) This is why so many covered bridges lasted so long. The non-covered bridges on the other hand, would typically last only 10 to 15 years.

But thanks to their roofs, these old bridges have stood tall for nearly a century.
