Flume Covered Bridge From On High

October 29, 2012

Franconia Notch State Park

The White Mountains offer many wonderful things to see and do. A visit to Franconia Notch State Park in Lincoln, New Hampshire, is definitely one of them. This scenic waterfall and gorge location is truly a sight to see. The Flume Covered Bridge is located within the park; a short distance from the Visitor’s Center.

I always try to see things from a unique perspective. A short hike to this vantage point soon gave me a great way to both see and photograph the bridge from an atypical location.

A Bit About The Flume Covered Bridge

Every covered bridge is different and features its own unique history. This bridge is no exception. The Flume Covered Bridge was built in 1871. Although it is believed to have been built on this location originally, there is some discussion that it may have been built elsewhere and later transported to this location.

Spanning the Pemigewasset River, the bridge measures 50 feet in length, and over 20 feet in width. A hikers’ walkway is attached to the north side.

As you can see, the fall foliage did wonders to frame the bridge for this shot.

    That is a very nice angle Liz! I guess I’ll have to back and visit next Oct. I got as far as the Flume gorge parking lot on 1 Oct but it was misting rail and not conducive to a walking the woods… Thanks for sharing..
