Lazy Day in Pequonnock Valley

It was absolutely beautiful today - sunny but a bit of a breeze and I decided to not ride the usual today so I first rode the back trails at Old Mine. I parked at the circle at the end of Corporate Drive and stayed up high the whole time, never descending to the parking lot. Snapped a nice woodsy shot while way over on the east side.

I then drove to the Whiney lot and rode the rail trail. Then  I headed up to the little mini  trail playground just north of Parlor Rock. Yep I was lazy but I still enjoyed the day!

Lastly a quick trip back to hang out by the spot of the old North Bridge <sigh>

Another one-handed video captures some highlights:

Wilton Woods - May 4th

Stream sounds and checking out the moved bridge

 It was another wet and dreary day and I felt it would not be a good day to mountain bike (trails would be too wet) so I decided to take a hike in Wilton Woods instead. I entered at the main lot at Branch Brook and ascended the Blue Trail on the East.

What a great job the trail crew did moving this bridge! Gotta get back here on a sunny and dry day to ride it :-)

Never noticed this but there is a rusted wreck is off the the side of the White Trail when ascending the nasty hill just after the main stream crossing.

Wilton Woods - The sounds of streams...

Lastly, I will be creating a musical composition from these stream sounds (another addition to my Nature Suite). Stay tuned!
