Hello my friends,
I had to hop in and share the wonderful covered bridges we saw today in New Hampshire.
The Scenery driving from one to the next was absolutely breathtaking!
The Hancock-Greenfield bridge built in 1937 is pretty rustic.
I love the reflection in these two photos!
We drove through this stone arch on our way to the next bridge.
The Carlton Bridge was first built in 1789 and has been
This $5 fine sign made me smile!
The Slate Bridge is the same color as the Carlton, but has
a uniquely different shape.
It was originally built in 1862, but rebuilt in 2001.
The Coombs bridge. This is a lattice truss bridge built in 1837.
The inside trusses.
The Thompson bridge is my favorite so far. I also love the story that went along with it.
It was originally built in 1832, but in 1973 it was posted for a six ton load limit which meant school buses could cross but only if empty. When a bus full of students would come to the bridge, the students would get off the bus, walk across the bridge, and reboard the bus on the other side.
Sawyer's Crossing bridge is located near an old Indian community.
A couple of side views of Sawyer's Crossing.
Fall foliage and fencing.
We had such a wonderful day and not only did I see gorgeous scenery and visit 6 covered bridges; but I also found fabulous treasures along the way.
That's another post for another day! :)
