PHOTO FOCUS:  New Hampshire’s covered bridges

By Andy Brack, editor and publisher  |  One of the joys of traveling across rural New Hampshire is finding loads of covered bridges.  In the northern part of the state just an hour or two from Canada are no less than 28 covered bridges, some dating more than 188 years old to another built just 13 years ago.

Following photos of bridges are some scenic delights from around the Granite State for you to enjoy including a picturesque farm, a 218-year-old meeting house, views from a tall mountain, a typical village green, a ramshackled barn, a nod to politics and lobsters.

Photos by Elizabeth Halberstadt, special to Charleston Currents  |  West Ashley resident Elizabeth Halberstadt spent the last month on an academic trip in England and Scotland.  A couple of them have book themes, which makes sense because she’s studying for a master’s of library science degree.
