CT: Fairfield County-Monroe-Great Hollow Lake

An off season fun find!

Great Hollow Lake is in Wolfe Park in Monroe CT which in season is for residents only. It also skirts the edge of the Housatonic Rail Trail.

Recalling the lake as I biked passed a couple of years ago I decided to return. The trail around the lake is well maintained and does not allow bikes or dogs. I enjoyed the shadows of the upcoming boardwalk coupled with reflecting sky in the thin icy top of the lake.

As the path continued I found a meandering Brook going under a bridge and that’s the area at which I stayed quite a while and reflected.

I was mesmerized by the sounds of the water and the sun beams reflecting on the icicles. I then came to an area where the icicles came off an area of moss and branches that I could spy through the barren trees. I crawled through the rocks and bramble to the edge where I could feel the chill of the water in the breeze to try and get a capture through the lens.

This park includes many recreational activities in season for its Monroe residents including swimming, fishing, boating, tennis – but for now, for me, the serenity, icicles, babbling brooks and boardwalks and bridges were all great gifts that were much appreciated.
