New Snow on an Old Bridge

January 20, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I just love new snow! After several days of cold, barren landscapes The coast of Maine was coated with a few inches of the white flakes during Saturday night and Sunday morning. On our way to church I noted a little island in the Pemaquid River behind the town information booth of Bristol, Maine.  About 3 o’clock in the afternoon I finally crossed the little footbridge to the island and was delighted to see this view down river.

This little stone arch bridge on the Benner Road in Bristol Mills was built around 1857 and has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 2003. A short distance downstream from this bridge is a dam whose presence forms a very popular swimming hole. Starting at the launching ramp just above the bridge is a peaceful kayaking and canoeing route heading upriver to Biscay Pond and beyond.

While I took numerous pictures of the new snow during the day, this was my favorite shot. Today it just speaks peace to me.
