December 27, 2020 – Gill-Montague Bridge/Turners Falls-Gill Bridge – Massachusetts

Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Gill-Montague Bridge, also referred to as the Turners Falls-Gill Bridge. This bridge is a steel truss bridge that crosses the Connecticut River. The Bridge was built in 1938 and later remodeled in 2013.

We had a soaring Adventure to the Gill-Montague Bridge. We have driven across, and walked under this Bridge before, but decided to take the pedestrian bridge across and check out the intricate details. I was originally drawn to this idea as I had seen some shooting water from afar and was eager to locate the site of origination. So after enjoying a long walk on the Canalside Rail Trail we decided to take the journey up and over. (See this link for our original blog from the Canalside Rail Trail.) We walked across the Bridge until we located the water from what appeared to be a damn or power plant. I guess I should know exactly what it was caused by, and although I do not I do know it was spectacular, churning high in the air, which created gorgeous and unusual textures. We stopped numerous times to check out the views, and then walked to the end before returning. Unfortunately one of the most beautiful parts of the bridge is the side view, however I found it difficult to photograph due to the fencing, or other barriers. However, hopefully this overall gives readers a feel for this special bridge. So glad to share this unusual Adventures to those who love the water, bridges, and bringing their favorite furry pals on their Adventures (this blog will not be rated).

Throwback Adventure – Mt. Orne Covered Bridge – New Hampshire

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

In October 2017 Shadow, Wilma, My Mom, and I Adventured to the Mt. Orne Covered Bridge in Lancaster, New Hampshire.  The Mt. Orne Covered Bridge is listed as located in Lancaster, New Hampshire, but connects Lancaster with Lunenburg, Vermont.  It was built in 1911 and crosses the Connecticut River.

We had a wonderful Adventure to the Mt. Orne Covered Bridge.  This was one of our Adventures on a Fall weekend getaway, the first Fall getaway for Wilma, yet what has become an annual tradition.  We ventured far North to discover this lovely Bridge, making sure to photograph the Bridge from various angles.  It was extremely long, and beautifully landscaped with natural features.  We sauntered around the field-like area surrounding the Bridge.  The Mt. Orne Bridge was definitely one of the more rural covered bridges we have discovered, away from the bustles of the word.  So glad we could take the trip to visit the Mt. Orne Covered Bridge (Throwback Adventures will not always be rated)
