New Hampshire Roads - NH 135
Northbound on old NH 135 in Woodsville.
Heading back across SB. The bridge reference marker is posted on the southeast wall; the bottom "000" indicates that it's right on the town line.
Closeup of the top of the sign atop the page, and looking down at a survey marker.
Looking south from the north shore to the right (west) of the bridge, where a power plant takes advantage of natural rapids to create a small waterfall.
Looking east from current NH 135.
On the west side of NH 135, looking to the south at a small pocket formed by the rapids and waterfall, and then north where the Ammonoosuc River joins the mighty Connecticut.
Looking southwest on Court St. (former NH 135 away from the bridge) into Haverhill.
Jumping way north to Dalton, here's an old railroad bridge spanning the Connecticut River.
Here's what's left of the Connecticut this far north.
Just north of there, here's the 1911 Mt. Orne Bridge, replacing an earlier crossing that washed away in 1905. It and the 1912 Columbia Bridge are two of the last old covered bridges built before they were replaced by more modern structures, and also happen to be the last two Howe trusses in NH and the last two covered Connecticut River crossings. Both of them are way up in Coos County where the river is narrow enough to make it work.
Just like that, I've driven into Vermont, home of the fastest stops you've ever seen.
Back east from Lunenburg to NH.
NH 18 and NH 135/18
