Trumbull- Turtle Rock and the Orange Stream Hill

Pequonnock River Valley State Park - September 5, 2005

Turtle Rock
Our favorite spot - many a weekend has been spent here...
(behind the log in the middle of the rocky stream is a swimming hole -
we built up the dam to create it)

Awesome Rocks
(at the top of a long trek - I didn't attempt the descent!)

(a wonderland for mountain bike adventures...)
Chain Loose by the Orange Stream
(Mr. Fix-it resetting his chain)

Mini Stream before Hill
the hill behind Greg is a rough climb, but at the top is the awesome red trail
(rock gardens galore on a winding single track)

Mini Stream before Hill (2)
Charge over the stream and stones and plow up the hill with all your might ...
(you won't make it!)

Greg on Hill
(typical easy single track)
