Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected


The Waldon-Hancock Bridge is just below Bangor, Maine, crosses the Penobscot River and connects the counties of Waldo and Hancock. It is the first long-span suspension bridge in Maine and one of the eighty six in the Country. It is approximately 2,040′ long and 236′ high.

Beautiful and definitely connected. 🙂

    What a challenge to build a bridge! The engineering of pillars sunk into water, the strength of the sections between posts, the stability of the span allowing for sway from wind gusts…wow!

  5. It looks identical to the one they built in Boston, but the setting is MUCH nicer.

  9. Love the lines and composition, as well as the interpretation of “connected.”
    We have very few bridges in Colorado (over rivers). The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Royal Gorge. (Perhaps its size and popularity makes up for it being pretty much the only one in Colorado.) 😀

    Aside from the beauty of this bridge, it is quite unique in having an observatory at the top, which is open to the public in the summer, spring, and fall. We visited on a spectacularly clear day this week and really enjoyed the 360 degree view at the top. Also, nearby Fort Knox is interesting and dog-friendly!

    Judy, I’m here through Jason blog and I’ve read all your recent posts, wonderful! The most I liked one about you moving your plants like crazy gardener : this is I’m doing now in my garden.


    • Every year, I think I just need to move a few plants around to get it just right. LOL Then spring comes, something died under 7′ of snow, and it is still off balance. So, I start the process all over again. Then you add in I’m trying to replace some high maintenance perennials with shrubs/larger plants like hydrangeas to cut down the deadheading a little and I’m forever moving. Glad to know I’m not alone. Maybe we need a support group? 🙂
