Lost Lake Loop

I started this post back in October (2015) and I have posted several pictures from this trail in a slide show, but I wanted to single out some of those photos even more, so I picked this up where I left off…

Oct. 26, 2015

…In doing some research online, looking for some local trails to pursue, I came across the Kuncanowet Town Forest and Conversation Area. I am so glad that I did. This area is, in my opinion, breathtakingly beautiful. I haven’t even explored all of it yet, and I am taken by its overall setting and beauty. Thanks also to Dunbarton Hikes for the useful videos I found on YouTube. God-willing, I will be back in these woods again soon. Enjoy my attempts to capture the magnificent through the lens of my camera; it’s better in person.

A great place to reflect

There was more beauty around than I could capture in a dozen visits. 1inawesomewonder ©

There is something to be said for the treasure found following the straight and narrow. 1inawesomewonder ©

 

Lost Lake worth finding

Ahhh, to sit here in silence, allowing time and space their effect. 1inawesomewonder ©

North Uncanoonuc Foliage

Back on the 1st of November, I tackled a short, but quite steep hike up North Uncanoonuc Mountain. The trail climbs quickly even if it’s really quite short. The real prize though, was getting to the top of the undeveloped mountain and seeing all the wonderful views in various directions. I can only imagine how many generations of native americans, and then settlers, who had climbed this same mountain to see what there was to see from the top.

Walking in the mountain place of the bear

Color the woods

At every turn color awaits in this beautiful place.

Shades of yellow and green

The shadows hide from the light, but both seem so perfect here.

Mill Pond Peace

I couldn’t help but smile as this scene opened up in front of me.

Mill Pond Color

Who needs a structure where everything is put together just right.

Leaves in the Sky

Leaves and lilypads in the sky.

Reflection upside down

Nature defines the what’s up and what’s down out here.

Beauty after life

And, long after life has gone, beauty remains.

Along the treeline

Generations of trees appear to be in order here.

Still water reflection

Not a mistake, but if it were, blame the beavers.

Height of color

Below the pond these pines beg you to stand up and take notice.

Old mill site

The beavers now look after the pond that supported this old mill site.

Trailhead View

Looking past the reservoirs out to the hills.

Fallen

Fallen leaves soften the trail.

Trickle

A small brook trickles through the colors.

Backdrop

Sometimes the woods just describe their own picture.

Depth of color

Beautiful fall colors at all levels.

Wild window

Windows in the woods only reveal themselves when present.

Ablaze

From the ground the colors climbed like a flame.

Corridor Color

Oh to feel the power of the One who colors each leaf and needle.

Corridor Color 2

The colors shine brightly without any help from man’s creation.

Beaver done

Maybe only the forest’s hardest worker built this.

Flood of color

I sat in the beaver’s back yard and took in the sights.

Water fraction

Just a little water running, but the sound filled the space.

Fall in the Forest

Oh, but the joy is all mine when I wander in from the edge just to listen and have a look around.
