My World Tuesday: Brian Tierney Preserve, Roxbury









We had a nice walk around the Brian Tierney Preserve in Roxbury, Connecticut, over the weekend.  The trail is clearly marked (except where it isn't), and it winds around some pretty steep ledges around this beautiful land that was sculpted into the earth by glaciers thousands upon thousands of years ago.  It's a strange and wonderful thing to walk along the edges and observe the steep drops; the time of creation seems not so long ago, yet.... The morning light was really spectacular, and the water coming down the Cascades, glorious.

  8. Great post and great pictures. I really liked the arrow in the first photograph.

    I read through your link on your previous post on the Roxbuy Land Trust. What a treasure for the community and a testament to the generosity of of the families that donated so much land.

  20. You have certainly captured the perfection of the morning as well as the glacial influences in the landscape. The cascades are truly wonderful with their ledging scraped by glacier flow.

    I like the well marked trail except where it wasn't . . .

  35. The photo of the stream cascading over rocks is spectacular. It looks like a painting...lovely!

  36. okay, seriously!!!!!!!
    we must have been thinking and doing the same thing. I was at HIlton Falls, a site of glacier carved wonders and an old mill... and well.
    It's a comfort to know there are people seeing what I see sometimes.
    too funny though.
    I was taken with the fern still such brilliant green with all of the decay.
