Photographer's Note

This community is the birthplace of Sir Adolphe-Basile Routhier (1839-1920.) Routhier was the author of the French lyrics to “Ô Canada”, our national anthem. He was also a lawyer, poet, novelist and playwright. Routhier served as chief justice of Quebec and president of the Royal society of Canada.

This covered bridge is far from the main road and you have to drive more than 20km on unpaved road and through typical pines forest

The road on the other side of the bridge is a dead end, as you enter directly on a private property. The covered bridge is named after the village, Saint-Placide-de Charlevoix.

Thanks to Marc Trippaerts who teach me to always have rubber boots in the trunk of the car.
