Enders Falls

This entry is part 2 of 6 in the series Enders State Forest

  Over the weekend, I visited several waterfalls.  One of the most impressive was a series of 5 or 6 waterfalls in the Enders State Forest in Granby, Connecticut.  Above is a photo of my favorite one of the set and I believe the one with the longest drop (although I could be wrong on […]

Gorge at Roaring Brook Falls

Gorge at Roaring Brook

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Roaring Brook

  In one of my previous posts, I mentioned that it’s important to be very careful at Roaring Brook Falls.  This photo is a shot from the trail looking down to the bottom of the gorge formed by Roaring Brook just below the falls.  I’m not sure if the scale of the gorge comes through […]

Stone Wall across Roaring Brook in Cheshire, Connecticut

Stone Wall Across Roaring Brook

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Roaring Brook

  This small waterfall created by a stone wall is downstream from Roaring Brook Falls in the Cheshire Land Trust located in Cheshire, Connecticut.  I’m not sure what this stone wall or foundation was original built for, but I’m guessing it had something to do with the stream (maybe an old mill foundation?).  This area […]

Roaring Brook in Cheshire Connecticut

Roaring Brook

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series Roaring Brook

  Down stream from Roaring Brook Falls, you can find this area of Roaring Brook.  I really like how the trees butt right up against the sides of the brook.  It’s a very easy, short, and level walk from the parking lot to get to this section of Roaring Brook on the Cheshire Land Trust property.

Close-up of Spruce Brook

Close-up Photo of Spruce Brook

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Naugatuck State Forest

  On Spruce Brook, there are many opportunities for close-up photography like the one above.  I was only there for a few hours, but probably could have spend all day.  If you do visit this brook in the Naugatuck State Forest, be careful – the road coming in from Beacon Falls is really rough in […]

Small Waterfall in the Naugatuck State Forest

Small Waterfall in the Naugatuck State Forest

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Naugatuck State Forest

  This is a photo of a small waterfall located in the Naugatuck State Forest in Beacon Falls, Connecticut.  I’m not sure if this is a perennial or annual stream.  We had a lot of rain the day before this photo, so this waterfall might only have this much flow after a heavy rain – […]

Spurce Brook in Naugatuck State Forest

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series Naugatuck State Forest

  Here’s another view of Spruce Brook in Naugatuck State Forest.  This is downstream from the waterfall and I would classify it as a small cascade.  Beautiful area and I had a really enjoyable time here. According to HikeCT.com and other sources, there are quite a few trails in the park and some great vistas.  […]
