Ever since I started this project I have asked my husband many times how come I have lived in this town for so many years and I didn't know this (fill in the blanks) was here? I have discovered waterfalls, tunnels, ponds that didn't even know existed. Hurd park is about 5 minutes from our house. We had been there before, but didn't know there were trails that after a short walk would take us to the Connecticut river. It was a very cloudy day, but the trees were very colorful.
