More from the Woods

Washington, Connecticut

In the Hidden Valley section of Steep Rock Reservation, the west bank of the Shepaug lies under steep hillsides. On the east side there's a wide flat floodplain before the next set of steep ridges. The forests on the flat and steep sides of the river are very different. (You can get a better view of the pictures by clicking on either of them.

Another Walk in the Woods, with Tree Portraits

Washington, Connecticut

Somehow yesterday's post with some pictures from Steep Rock Reservation and notes about trail maps has gotten deleted, along with at least one comment. Not sure what went wrong, but if I can get around to it I might recreate the post.

Spring Weeds (from May 10)

Seymour, Connecticut

Somehow I don't associate dandelions with the paved, urban, environment. But here they were.
