Macedonia State Park, Kent, Connecticut.
We took a walk in this gem of a park and while the walk was great, the brook was almost completely dry. We’ve had a drought this summer in the Northeast and it’s been tough on both the landscape and hikers who depend on running brooks for a water source.
Still brooks do make for nice reflections though so I guess there’s a bit of an upside.
Macedonia State Park, Connecticut. The loop trail around this gem of a park is about 7 miles long and quite a serious hike. It goes over Cobble Mountain and crosses Macedonia Brook just below a large beaver dam. Wearing polarized sunglasses is a must on hikes but they actually prevent one from clearly seeing reflections like this so we’re in the habit of taking them off as we pass potential reflecting pools.
