CT: Southbury: Kettletown Park (Hiking)

I researched for an easy, short but scenic trail due to an injury preventing me from strenuous athletics. So on a perfect June day with no humidity and 70 degrees, I found Brook Trail.

NY: Catskills- Peekamoose Bluehole

For a couple of years I read about a small swimming hole with a blue glow within the NY Catskill preserve. It would get so busy that now it requires reservations and is manned to ensure it’s kept clean. I met a really nice 25 year old ranger named Eli who checked us in. HeContinue reading “NY: Catskills- Peekamoose Bluehole”

A little bit of Europe in CT walking along the Naugatuck Greenway on Housatonic River. The greenway starts in Derby and is planned for 44 miles to Torrington.

CT: Hartford County- Blackledge Falls (Winter)

I stood in the center of Blackledge Falls in Glastonbury, CT which was literally frozen in time. I included myself in the shot for scale.

About 1/2 mile hike from the lot but it is a steep decline to the falls so must wearContinue reading “CT: Hartford County- Blackledge Falls (Winter)”

CT: New Haven County- Milford (Winter Waterfalls)

The temperature was 7 with a windchill of below zero. One of my go to activities on such days are finding easy waterfalls to go see. Fortunately, Duck Pond Falls in Milford fit the bill!

CT: New Haven County- Southford Falls (Winter Waterfall)

Our temperature is neck to neck with Anchorage Alaska today at 25 degrees which I felt within the icy chasms of Southford Falls.

I would worry about weaknesses in the ices depth but they all were having a greatContinue reading “CT: New Haven County- Southford Falls (Winter Waterfall)”

CT: Litchfield County- Winter Wonderland Tour

With the first snow of the year I wondered where I could go for the biggest bang for my buck! Litchfield County it was! A great and manageable day with multiple stops and awesome views!
