  • A Visit To Ledyard's Land Of Boulders And An Ancient Pine Swamp

    A Visit To Ledyard's Land Of Boulders And An Ancient Pine Swamp
    Maybe it was the type of day – a sultry summer afternoon with the sun peeking around thunderclouds. Or maybe it was because I knew the area's back story – a place that hasn't changed much since colonial times, when the forboding swamp served...
  • Washington's Macricostas Preserve: As Close To Perfection As It Gets

    Washington's Macricostas Preserve: As Close To Perfection As It Gets
    Bee Brook is the perfect name for the waterway that passes through Macricostas Preserve. At first it runs smoothly through a field of tall grass and wildflowers, like a bee quietly collecting pollen from a flower. But once it enters a deep, heavily...
  • A View Of The Sea For All To See

    A View Of The Sea For All To See
    Connecticut is not exactly known for having long, walkable stretches of shoreline. Not unless you want to be arrested for trespassing on someone's private beach or jetty. But there is a place where you can walk along a beach on Long Island Sound for...
  • The Stone Arch Bridges Of Wadsworth Falls State Park

    The Stone Arch Bridges Of Wadsworth Falls State Park
    In Connecticut, the robin is the state bird, "Yankee Doodle" is the state song, the mountain laurel is the state flower and, of course, the sperm whale is the state mammal. And if there was ever a state bridge, I would go with the stone arch. Dating...

    What's being promoted as "the most highly sought after Grateful Dead show captured on film" will run simultaneously in HD at theaters around the country on August 1, including nine cinemas in Connecticut, according to a Fathom Events press release....
  • The Sweet Scent Of Spring And The Highs And Lows Of Hiking In Cheshire

    The Sweet Scent Of Spring And The Highs And Lows Of Hiking In Cheshire
    For most shoppers, when they hit the mall or grocery store, the sweetest five words are: buy one, get one free. This week, I offer not one but two suggestions for hikes in Cheshire – one that takes you to some of the bedding plant capital of...
  • A Trip Along The Tops Of Jericho's Ledges In Old Lyme

    A Trip Along The Tops Of Jericho's Ledges In Old Lyme
    Growing up, I was never one to stay on the trail. Family hikes consisted of my parents saying: "Oh, kids, look at that bird," "Oh, kids, look at that rare plant," and "Where did Peter go?" And 40-something years later, not much has changed. Especially...
  • Former Girl Scout Camp Now Berlin's Hatchery Brook Conservation Area

    Former Girl Scout Camp Now Berlin's Hatchery Brook Conservation Area
    As flags were raised into the blue sky during the dedication ceremony for Camp Meribrite on a June day in 1966, the hope was many would "enjoy the beauty and contentment" of the Girl Scout day camp "now and into the future." And although that beauty has...
  • A Journey To A Windswept Island In Goodwin State Forest

    A Journey To A Windswept Island In Goodwin State Forest
    Maybe it's because I read "Treasure Island" too many times as a kid. Or maybe it was the islands of grass -- known as "witches heads" -- we would hop across as kids to get to the other side of the swamp. Whatever the reason, I love islands. Whether I...
  • Portland Still A Gap In State's Air Line Trail

    Portland Still A Gap In State's Air Line Trail
    Sigh. That's pretty much my reaction each time I pass portions of the abandoned Air Line Railroad as it twists and turns from the rusting iron swing bridge across the Connecticut River through Portland and into the Cobalt section of East Hampton....
