CT: Fairfield County-Easton-Brett Woods Park (Winter)

To keep things interesting, I try and locate new hikes the area. Since it’s the winter with ice and remnants of snow it can be more of a challenge. I chose Brett Woods in Easton and found it worth the jaunt!

First, I love loop trails and this was one that was just over two miles. Great for a trial trail for me.

Second, it has good signage and some bridges and wooden pathways.

Third, it has water views – a lake and various marshes and the famous stone walls of Connecticut.

While it may not have a waterfall, an overlook or ruins, it was a lovely hike where I focused on the thawing ice and forest reflections.

The main reason I bring the camera is that it requires my attention and focus on finding the beauty around me rather than walking and contemplating life’s challenges. I find outdoor adventures are a great opportunity to balance.

Brett Woods was worth the visit. I also met about 20 dogs on this trail. My favorite was Teddy the poodle who bounced around like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh.

This was my favorite picture of the day. The ice was somehow reflecting over the brook together with the trees and even a bit of blue sky on what was otherwise a cloudy day. I also see a heart made out of the branches dead center. Of course the workaholic me would not have seen it. I’m so happy that now it’s clearly visible to me.

It began to rain about a half hour following. My hike was perfectly timed and provided me a great memory to think about throughout my day.
