Running between Clinton and Essex Counties, the sinuous Ausable River courses through a long valley dotted with rugged towns and traversed by several bridges, each a unique type of structure.  Spend the day experiencing (and crossing) several of these historic bridges, among them Keeseville’s 1843 stone arch bridge and 1888 pedestrian suspension bridge, the 1857 Jay Covered Bridge, a variety of metal truss bridges, stone-faced reinforced concrete bridges, and the awe-inspiring 222-foot steel arch bridge that spans the dramatic Ausable Chasm.  The tour will take you from the heights of the Chasm to the narrow, scenic brooks of Keene Valley.  Steve Engelhart, AARCH Executive Director and author of Crossing the River:  Historic Bridges of the Ausable River will lead this one-of-a-kind outing.  Remember to pack a lunch.
