My plan was to photograph this bridge first and then make my way north taking pictures of other bridges as I went. As you can see from the photo above, when I reached this bridge, the area was still very much covered in a thick fog. I took a few photos and then drove up to the northernmost bridge and worked my way back to this one.
This bridge has the distinction of being the most northerly Connecticut River bridge connecting Vermont and New Hampshire. The Connecticut River separates the two states but any bridges north of here are all in New Hampshire where the river originates from Lake Francis.
The Columbia Bridge was built in 1912. It replaced an earlier bridge which had been destroyed by fire in 1911. I find it interesting that it is only open on one side.
This past week, my work brought me to Columbia, SC and allowed me to spend Sunday evening there. This series of photos documents my stroll from my hotel in The Vista by the Capitol and the University of South Carolina and ending at Five Points.
