Next up is the ARRT High Bridge. It’s one of the most popular sites on the trail, an iron trestle bridge 40 feet above the Assabet River. There are views up and down the river. It’s also the site of the annual Hudson Rotary Toy Duck race.
Walking across the bridge, I can hear some voices below me. That usually means kids playing on the river bank. But this was something different, a local photographer doing a modeling photo shoot. There were 4 people, the photographer, model and 2 assistants. The grass and the bridge makes an interesting backdrop. which is why they were there. File this under the ARRT generates unexpected economic activity, but we’ll take credit for anything! This was actually the 2nd photo shoot I’ve seen on the trail. Now all we need is a scene in a movie!
