  • A Meriden Peak With A Giant Autumn View Of Three States

    A Meriden Peak With A Giant Autumn View Of Three States
    Ah, Meriden's West Peak: The runner-up. The second-place finisher. The "Oh-this-isn't-Castle-Craig-it-must-be-the-other-way" turnaround spot. The Hanging Hills of Meriden – probably the best view in the state to which visitors can either hike or...

    A Spring View Of Winter Erosion Along Cape Cod's Outer Beaches

    A Visit To Killingworth's Nineveh Falls

    Griswold Preserve In Old Lyme A Natural Oasis Along Route 1
    Three words I love to hear when people talk about my column: "I never knew." As in, "I drove/ran/biked/walked past this for years and I never knew it existed." The George and Woodward H. Griswold Preserve, operated by the Old Lyme Land Trust, is one...

    In Orange, An Easy Hike Leads To Splendid Views
    To reach most overlooks in the state, one must scramble up craggy rocks, swing over bottomless chasms and grasp the sides of ledges with your fingernails. Well, at least it sometimes feels that way. That's not the case for those who visit the...
  • A Mad River Runs Through It

    A Mad River Runs Through It
    A river flows through the deep hemlock hollows in Wolcott. At times it's placid, the waters slowly flowing through the shadows of the dark forest, with the sun and clouds breaking through the canopy reflecting across the smooth surface. But at other...
