August 14, 2020 – Dalton Covered Bridge – New Hampshire

Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Dalton Covered Bridge in Warner, New Hampshire.  The Bridge is also referred to as the Joppa Road Bridge.  The Dalton Covered Bridge was built in 1853 and rebuilt in the 1960s.  It crosses the Warner River.

We had a fun Adventure to the Dalton Covered Bridge.  Although the bridge is found right off of Main Street, it is on a quiet, side road.  I first drove through the bridge to take some shots before returning to the opposite side to the parking location.  I was pleased to find an area to snap some photographs from the side angle.  We took our time, and then headed to the front of the bridge for some photographs.  As per usual I did not attempt to walk through the bridge as it was open to one way traffic.  However  I was pleased to find minimal traffic, and to locate this peaceful spot.  The River water looked quite still, so we did not attempt to get too close, unclear of the levels, and purity.  Interestingly I found the Dalton Covered Bridge to look quite similar to the nearby Waterloo Covered Bridge.  So glad to discover the Dalton Covered Bridge today (Rating:  3.5)

July 3, 2020 – Carlton Covered Bridge – New Hampshire

Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Carlton Covered Bridge in Swanzey, New Hampshire.  The Carlton Covered bridge is a wooden bridge that crosses the Ashuelot River.  The Carlton Bridge was built in 1789.

We had a hazy Adventure to the Carlton Covered Bridge.  I was pleased to find this bridge away from homes, and in more of a country setting then many.  We hopped out of the car and took some photographs, and the drove across to take photographs from the other side.  Although it was a quiet area, it still seemed a little unsafe to walk through, especially with a little Wilma in tow!  The bridge was surrounded by fields, creating a lovely scene.  We were able to locate one spot to go under the bridge, and found a little sandy area.  The water did not seem too clean so I decided to spend minimal time near the shore.  It was so nice to find a peaceful bridge on our last Adventure of the day (Rating:  3.5)
