Nice shots of the bridge! I like the first with the falls!

I've not been to the town myself, but hear it has quite a bit of NE Charm! Maybe on my fall list?!?!?!

It would be a great spot to visit in the fall! I stopped there one day on my way through and loved it.

Beautiful spot. We were walking through the general store enjoying the old time Americana, quite quaint really.

That was right up until the point when a tour bus showed up and 50 people got out and turned it into a Walmart. lol

Nice shots, Billy! We've been there, very picturesque. I know the country store as well.

but isn't this the longest covered bridge in America? The world?

One of our fondest memories was when my wife and I stopped by the general store on our first winter trip to New Hampshire. We arrived around 2 pm, it was cold and we bought two cups of the clam chowder and ate it on the front porch. Man, was that good! Later, when we were leaving to go home (a week later) we stopped by again and bought some cob smoked bacon which was excellent. We haven't been there for a while; maybe we'll stop by this fall.

Kevin, you sparked my interest with this one. So after a little Googling, I found that this one http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smolen%E2%80%93Gulf_Bridge is the longest, followed by this one http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornish%E2%80%93Windsor_Covered_Bridge . Info on the one in Bath can be found here http://www.nh.gov/nhdhr/bridges/p53.html . I have been to both the ones in Bath and Cornish, and still think the one in Bath is nicer. The newest one I feel doesn't qualify since it's too new. Just my two cents.:D

So funny! Here is my version of the bridge pictures taken in December last year.

Great pix but it looks cold Kevin.

All the shots of the bridge from everyone are great. I like the views looking down it from the outside on both sides. Kevin's first and third shots with the view of the falls and the church at the end are a particularly interesting perspective.

Great shots. So interesting that several of us have stopped and taken pictures of this. I might have to go back. . .

I was less than 1/2 hour from there (was at Lost River today).

When I lived in Vermont and would go to Lost River, I never knew a minute further up the road from where I turned such a cool covered bridge existed.

Now I have to go there...

I love the B&W. Definitely captures the essence of the old bridge...

I've driven through that town many times on my weekly trips to MWO. It's interesting how little snow that region of NH gets. The mountains to the south and east provide a "rain" shadow during most nor'easters. The Extreme Weather book by Burt lists Monroe, just a few miles north of Bath as the driest location in the state. Average precip is 36". And only a few dozen miles from the wettest location of Mount Washington with over 100" of liquid.

I too really like the b/w. To me it brings out the wood grain and knots better. Nicely done.

And my sister lives nearby in Grantham - they get dumped with snow.

My contribution to the thread ... surprised I was able to locate the photo. Looks like December 2004 was my visit.
