October 22, 2018 – Bath-Haverhill Covered Bridge – New Hampshire

Today Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to the Bath-Haverhill Covered Bridge in Bath, New Hampshire. The Bridge was built in 1829 and covers the Ammonoosuc River. It is suspected to be the oldest covered bridge in New Hampshire. It is open to foot traffic only.

We enjoyed our Adventure to the Bath-Haverhill Covered Bridge. It was nice to find a pedestrian-only bridge, allowing us to saunter under the lattice truss architecture. The views from the bridge were beautiful, filled with fall foliage and mountain scenes. As we began walking across we heard roaring water and were pleased to find yet another bridge with a water feature below. I was humored by a sign indicating a maximum number of people, (where usually the bridges display a car maximum).

After walking past the bridge we kept going and were soon enthused to find a trail down to the River, with a splendid view of the bridge. Shadow enjoyed a nap in the sand, Wilma sniffed around, and I snapped away. We spent some time at this bridge location before heading off to our next Adventure. We were pleased to wander around the Haverhill-Bath Covered Bridge today. (Rating: 4)

October 22, 2018 – Bath Covered Bridge, New Hampshire

Today Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to the Bath Covered Bridge in Bath, New Hampshire. The Bridge was built in 1832 and spans the Ammonoosuc River. It is one of New Hampshire’s oldest covered bridges.

We had a fun Adventure to the Bath Covered Bridge. It was another long bridge with red on the ends, a light colored wood on the side, and some small waterfall features below. Initially it looked like we would not get a good side view of the bridge, but the more we walked the more we discovered. Eventually we were under the bridge, and were able to walk along a work road that gave us a spectacular view. We went down to the River’s Edge for for some sticks, and sips, digging, even enjoying a short game of tug-a-war. Shadow and Wilma posed for some great photographs with the Bridge. I am especially enthused when I find a covered bridge that you really can explore, and the Bath Covered Bridge definitely provided this feature. We were quite happy to find the Bath Covered Bridge on our Adventure today (Rating: 4).

October 22, 2018 – Swiftwater Bridge – New Hampshire

Today Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to the Swiftwater Bridge in Bath, New Hampshire. The Bridge was built in 1849 and covers the Ammonoosuc River. It is one of the few original bridges in New Hampshire. The Swiftwater Bridge has a small waterfall, and is a popular swimming hole in the summer.

We had a nice Adventure to the Swiftwater Bridge. It was a picturesque, and long bridge with a waterfall, and rocky area below. We had trouble getting down the trail due to the rocks, but soon found another trail. We hopped carefully on the rocks and closer to the Bridge. The sun was streaming down in our eyes, so it was hard to get a great photograph. However we did our best and tried all angles and spots we could find. Of course we could not resist heading down to the River’s Edge for some puppy sips. I found that the footing around this location a little challenging for Shadow, so we had a short visit to the Bridge. Although a quick stop we still found the Swiftwater Bridge to be a lovely spot (Rating: 4).
