October Snow Storm in Connecticut

October Snow Storm

Hard to believe, but we’re getting a freak October snow storm here in Connecticut.  The trees in my area still have most of their leaves – they must be really confused.  When this is all finished, we could have up to 5 inches here and possibly more in northern Connecticut. Another post will be coming tonight […]

Because the weather was so nice, I couldn’t resist another marathon photography session.  The first stop was Lover’s Leap State Park in New Milford, Connecticut.  This is a beautiful little spot with several trails and nice vistas overlooking Lake Lillinonah and the Housatonic River.  I walked a couple of the trails, but there are several […]
