Throwback Adventure – Upper Sheffield Covered Bridge – Massachusetts

I believe today is the first week in just over two years of the blog that I forgot to post by Thursday Throwback blog! I was so disappointed in myself but after a busy week with lots on my mind that is the truth. So cheers to my first Throwback Friday blog (haha!) Here it is…

I have decided to return to posting new “Throwback Adventures” after taking time to re-post some of my favorites with Shadow.  This has been a therapeutic process for me to share.  We are devastated that both Shadow and Buster have both passed, but find peace knowing we can continue to remember them through our “Throwback Adventures”.  They were amazing boys and are forever in our hearts.

The Upper Sheffield Covered Bridge, also referred to as the Old Covered Bridge is located in Sheffield, Massachusetts. It was originally built between 1832-1854 but later reconstructed in 1999 after a fire destroyed it in 1994. The Upper Sheffield Covered Bridge for pedestrians only and traverses the Housatonic River.

In May 2017 Shadow and I Adventured to the Upper Sheffield Covered Bridge on a full day of memorable Adventures. I loved the unusual blue color of the bridge, and it was fun to explore it while walking slowly through. It is amazing to see how many photos I used to take versus now as I was only able to locate two these photographs. Shadow looks so unenthusiastic in this snapshot but I can promise you he had a wonderful day! I look forward to returning in the future and taking endless photographs of this lovely bridge (Rating: Throwback Ratings will not always be rated)

September 1, 2018 – Groveton Covered Bridge – New Hamphire

Today Shadow, Wilma and I Adventured to the Groveton Covered Bridge in Northumberland, New Hampshire. The Bridge was built in 1852 by Captain Charles Richardson and his son. It traverses the Upper Ammonoosuc River.

We were happy to start the first day of September with a journey to a new covered bridge. The day was a bit cloudy, and gratefully cooler then recent days. We found the Groveton Covered Bridge just off the main road, with parking nearby. The bridge was white in color. The paint was pealing off, revealing a run-down landmark. However we were to pleased to see it stable for foot traffic, and open for exploring. We took a walk down the sides of the rivers taking photographs, and then looped far around to get a distant view. There were many wild flowers in the area, adding some bright color. We studied the architecture as we strolled through the Bridge, careful not to be run down by the constant ATV activity. After we had an opportunity to capture all available angles we decided to sit and the grass to savor the experience. A fun start to our day of Adventures in New Hampshire (Rating: 3).
