Today’s image is the Blair Bridge in Campton, NH. I have driven by its exit off I-93 several times recently on my way to and from skiing trips further north, and found myself driving by it again this weekend. This time I had no one with me, and thus no excuse not to stop to see if it would be worthwhile. And it definitely was.
Although other bridges had been built at this location beginning in 1829, the current structure was built in 1869, and is NH covered bridge #41. It’s only wide enough to accommodate one vehicle at a time, and cars need to wait when there is another already crossing the bridge. It creaks and groans when you drive across it, which just adds to the experience. This is another spot that’s going on my “I gotta get back here in the fall” list.
