Description:
This is a picture of the draw bridge in Grand Isle. The photo was taken from the side bank of the bridge. A steep grass and rock covered hill goes up along the right side of the photo with the metal drawbridge mechanism at the top (you can see part of the red and white bar that descends when the bridge is pulled up). There is a budding tree on the left of the photo indicating that it is spring time. There is a red brick building at the other end of the bridge with several windows and triangular shaped green roof. Another grass and stone bank can be seen on the other bank which is toped by a white house with possibly four windows and a green roof. The bridge itself is green and there are supports. There is a white and blue sign on the middle beam, the text is unreadable. There is a red light above the sign. Lake Champlain is visible.
