Covered bridge over Wildcat Creek

Just off Highway 126 between near Eugene, an old wooden bridge crosses Wildcat Creek.

Long before the age of the automobile, covered bridges, dim inside except for the light from the small windows on each side, provided shelter from the elements for courting couples who could find few other places to be alone but out of the weather.

Built in 1925, the Wildcat Bridge is one of several in Oregon's Lane County.
