I traveled up to Connecticut yesterday to spend a beautiful spring afternoon outdoors. I discovered the White Memorial Conservation Center near Litchfield, Connecticut. 4,000 acres of forests, fields, and wetlands and more than 40 miles of trails in northwestern Connecticut. I only explored a small section, taking the 3-plus mile loop around the (not-so) Little Pond. This is an easy walk along flat paths and a boardwalk that circles the pond.
In addition to the spring buds creating a lovely backdrop, there were birds everywhere.
And a frog.
As the day wore on, the light became even more beautiful.
Of course, I took lots of photos, all of which can be found here.
