Yesterday we visited the Smith Covered Bridge in Plymouth, New Hampshire. This is a bridge we have been to several times before. The Smith Bridge was built in 1850, but was destroyed by fire in 1993, and later rebuilt as a covered bridge. It is a long truss bridge with added arches, and crosses the Baker River.
We had a nice visit to the Smith Covered Bridge. The Bridge has a beach like area below, along the Baker River. This allowed for some Shadow swimming, which is always great on a warm summer day. Wilma mostly enjoyed chasing butterflies, which I find quite entertaining. The water was not rushing, but we did see people arriving with inner tubes, likely for some River fun. We walked around for a bit, and then sauntered across the bridge. The bridge has a hallway-like area on one side, allowing pedestrian crossing. I definitely appreciate this feature in a covered bridge, as I do not enjoy dodging cars. Not a lot of color, or any landscaped features, but I still relished taking some photographs before we headed off to our next destination (Rating: 3).
