Exploring Connecticut’s State Parks (part IV)

When I first started this Connecticut State Parks series, I was thinking it would be 3 or 4 posts long. Turns out I drastically underestimated the number of state parks Pat and I have been to.

In July 2011, three friends and I embarked upon a three-week Canadian Rockies adventure in which we camped our way through… Continue reading Icebergs and Lakes and Bears, Oh My! – Glacier National Park, Montana (part VI)
