Bridging New England

Our drive from Maine to Vermont wouldn’t have been nearly as enjoyable if we hadn’t decided to go on a covered bridge scavenger hunt.

The first bridge of the day we found was the Lancaster Bridge just off Highway 2 in Lancaster, NH.

Not far away we located the Mt. Orme Bridge which connects the states of New Hampshire and Vermont.

By the time we reached the forgotten village of Greenbanks Hollow and its bridge in Danville, Vermont, the blue skies of the morning had changed to gray.

Coburn Bridge no longer serves vehicles but instead supports pedestrian traffic and commemorates the bridge’s history as a museum.

The rain started falling by the time we left the museum at Coburn ending the scavenger hunt but one that can be continued on another day.
