     When the valley air turns crisp, a nearby pumpkin patch takes on a golden glow, and the surrounding foliage begins to change into bright shades of yellows, oranges and reds, there's nothing better than a ramble through the countryside. Here in the Susquehanna River Valley, visitors are introduced to a nostalgic look at Pennsylvania's farming heritage, its collection of winding rivers, miles of backcountry roads, quaint farming communities and some of the best fresh produce and bakery goods you've ever tasted.
     Surrounded by Northumberland, Snyder and Union Counties, the Susquehanna River Valley covered bridge tour is one way Dreeses Bridge - Snyder County, Pennsylvania to take in this picturesque countryside. Along with beautiful river views, sightseers will discover that the river valley is the farming heartland. The bridge tour leads through beautiful rolling hills and central Pennsylvania's great outdoors. Tracking down all 17 of the valley's covered bridges includes both sides of the Susquehanna River.
     This reflective view of a lazy Middle Creek in Snyder County near Beavertown captures the 140 year old Dreese's Bridge at sundown. Restored in 2001, the 95 foot Burr truss bridge has been bypassed by a modern bridge and is open to foot traffic only. Found in excellent condition, this bridge shows off the longevity of a Pennsylvania wooden bridge.
