    A Visit To Fair Haven And The Coastal Meadows Of The Quinnipiac River
    A pair of osprey circled a nesting platform that held what resembled a pile of sticks as I walked along a trail of mud and crushed oyster shells. Off in the distance, traffic droned past along busy I-91. A path snaked its way through a meadow and along...

  • Mill History Lives Along Nipmuck Trail, Fenton River

    It's nice to walk down the beach this time of year. The days are bright and sunny and sort of mild. The water gently laps along the shore. Despite the cold north wind, you feel the urge to lose your socks and shoes and feel the grains between your toes....

    A Ghostly Mountaintop With A View

    A Spring View Of Winter Erosion Along Cape Cod's Outer Beaches
