March 21, 2021 – Edgell Covered Bridge – New Hampshire

Today we Adventured to the Edgell Covered Bridge in Lyme, New Hampshire. The Edgell Covered Bridge was built in 1885. It runs along River Road and spans Clay Brook.

We had a nice Adventure to the Edgell Covered Bridge. It has been some time since we Adventured to a new covered bridge so I was excited to locate the Edgell Covered Bridge. We drove along River Road for a long time, I started thinking we would not find it but eventually it appeared. We got out of the car to find several cars parked next to the bridge, soon realizing there must be a trail nearby. We walked to and through the bridge. It was located in a quiet area but we did not spend much time walking the road through the bridge as it was open to traffic. The openings in the bridge were far above eye level, but I was able to stand on a wooden ledge and peer out. The Clay Brook was frozen and covered with some snow. Overall the bridge was somewhat dull but I was glad after driving out of the way for the purpose of finding the bridge, we did eventually arrive. So glad we could Adventure to the Edgell Covered Bridge today (Rating: 3).

Throwback Adventure – Mechanic Street Covered Bridge – New Hampshire

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.

In October 2017 Shadow, Wilma, My Mom, and I Adventured to the Mechanic Street Covered Bridge in Lancaster, New Hampshire.  The Mechanic Street Covered Bridge was built in 1862 and traverses the Israels River.  This Bridge is also sometimes referred to as the Israels River Bridge.

We had a lovely Adventure to the Mechanic Street Covered Bridge.  The Mechanic Street Covered Bridge is one of those interesting structures were from the front and back it looks quite modern, while from the side it appears more rustic.  I especially enjoyed the side view as I love a covered bridge that appears more wood in frame.  We were happy that we could climb down to the River and see the bridge from this angle.  Shadow and Wilma enjoyed exploring, drinking from the River, and climbing across the rocks.  It really is a pretty bridge.  So glad we could Adventure to the Mechanic Street Covered Bridge (Throwback Adventures will not always be rated).

 

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)
