Of course it was. And, there's more than enough info in the sign to pinpoint the location.

+1 - I've got the loc figured out no problem, but wasn't eligible to go for it until after tomorrow (due to the 2x2 rule).

Yup, the traffic is very heavy there but a quick stroll across the street with a little camera zoom gets you the shot without any immediate peril.

New tag

After driving around for hours( I could have been to Bethlehem for the NH tag), this is my choice.

Right in the middle of the Kimball Union Academy








And a NH Historical Marker in the hood too!

Here's a new wintery tag

I wasn't quite sure where I wanted to place this one. I was passing by this location and I couldn't remember if it had been used before. As far as I can tell, it hasn't. So here you go...

This is a totally cool old "Stone Arch Bridge", currently it goes to no-where.
It is located in the birthplace town of the 14th president of the United States, and you can visit his old crib just up the road if you like.
If you look closely, you'll see that there are actually two stone arch bridges side by side. The second one is still being used by a 3 digit US route that connects Delaware to Maine (summing the 3 digits = 4).

150 grand spent on rehabbing the bridge to nowhere. Your (and my) tax dollars at work.

Yabbut... These are pretty special bridges.

From what I understand, they are constructed with dry stone (no mortar), and after all... what's a few hundred thousand in today's inflated dollars compared to what it took (in mega man hours) to make them in the first place?

If one were to find these kind of bridges interesting, there are many more scattered around the country side nearby. This is just the one you almost stumble over on a regular basis (and no dirt roads) and yet probably never notice. Well worth spending a few minutes to look over closely, IMO. WiFi across the street!

But still found the bridge to nowhere

Nah, you'd have missed the kiddo's concert if you went for the NH tag. It's another 1/2 hour further north of Hillsborough.

Okay, not the spot I wanted to use but it was getting late (second showing coming up) and I will be with my dad at the hospital tomorrow...

so if you choose to accept the challenge go ride your motorcycle here ( no hint needed, correct?)
