Union, Connecticut




Information printed on trail maps reads; "Nipmuck State Forest and Bigelow Hollow State Park...lie within one of the largest unbroken forest areas in Eastern Connecticut". Snow covering the forest floor and ice covering the ponds and brooks, along with a good chill in the air, made for an exhilarating outdoor experience. This forest made me feel like I was truly out in the wilderness. Ice fisherman were braving the cold out on Mashapaug Pond.

Very nice pics from an upper part of the state.

Winter in New England, or rather winter in Connecticut.

Still wouldn't trade this state for anywhere else to live.

About Me

My photo
Hi, and welcome to my blog! In my working life I'm a cook, and in my personal life I'm married and have two daughters, plus a Chihuahua named Minnie. I am also a culinary school graduate with a degree in pastry arts. When I have a day off the first thing I think about is getting my camera and hitting the road. I've always loved road trips and I've been carrying a camera since I got a 110 Instamatic for my birthday when I was a kid. So, we get in the car and travel all over seeking out new back roads and new places to visit. At least twice a year we head up to the Northeast Kingdom in Vermont and take in some of the best scenery New England has to offer, and we get to New Hampshire, too. We also do some shorter trips to Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and sometimes even New York state (although it's not in New England) and once in a blue moon, we get to Maine. When I'm not on the road I'm right here at home reading, writing, watching some classic television like Andy Griffith, or Minnie and I are out strolling in the cemeteries enjoying the art and remembering the people.
