ctyanky invited me to NW CT to discover that part of New England's version of Fall color display. I've been eyeing that region for years but never got around to do it. This year was the time to do it. It ended up being a 12 hr day, but I managed to get a decent flavor for several towns that were planned for. After a hearty breakfast at the Wandering Moose Café (close to the West Cornwall covered bridge) it was time to venture out for photo ops. Tree color varied as well as leaf covering, due to several factors. This particular day was after a rain storm had hit a day or two prior (plus snow at higher elevations), a dry Summer and early Fall, and that day's forecast was for 20mph winds. Part of the challenge was finding appropriate scenes combined with remaining leaf cover and decent color. Most of the hot spots targeted beforehand were found by GPS and maps. I think I came away with some good enough photos to share with others. ctyanky coaxed me to post a link on here of a slideshow of pics I took on this visit to share with those who might be curious to what this area provides. I would like to go back again and get more pics from areas I didn't have enough time to see.
Here's the link if interested https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FczFucRTb1A
Thanks Mark for joining me and hope we can do the Northeast Corner of CT (aka the Quiet Corner) sometime soon. The landscape there is a whole different ball game, isn't it? The towns of Woodstock, Pomfret, Union, Eastford, Canterbury, Andover and Putnam to name a few, are New England countryside at its best! Thanks for posting memories of our fun day searching for color You'll have to come back and hit Norfolk and Lake Waramug next time around!
