Seeking Bunnell’s Falls

We know that one of the waterfalls on Bunnell Brook was historically called “Bunnell’s Falls”, but which one?


Southford Falls, Autumn Morning

Eightmile Brook leaps from an old mill pond and stages a vigorous charge through the dark gorge below.


Clark’s Stairway

Sometimes a simple babbling brook can, through tangential association, lead us unexpectedly into topics of great historical importance.


Whigville, April’s End

It’s waterfall season, folks: that exciting window during spring when leaves are out and woodland are running fast.


Bulkeley’s Millstream

Beneath the dense canopy of summertime woodlands, Dividend Brook leaps from a jagged cliff before meandering a half-mile eastward to unite with the vast Connecticut River.


Ceaseless Waterfalls

The cool waters of Carr Brook slip over a forest-shaded cliff, descending into a ceaseless whirlpool at the bottom of a rugged ravine just a few miles east of the Connecticut River.


Coburn Hideaway

The absence of a footpath, as well as the overall remoteness of the place, makes it likely that I’ve been the only person in many decades to peer up from the foot of these cascades. That’s worth every scraped elbow and labored breath!


Carr Brook Emerging

Remote woodlands of Central Connecticut emerge from the grip of winter, channeling fresh spring rains through a sprightly brook which tumbles through the hills.


Pequabuck Cauldron

Frigid waters leap eagerly over the precipice of Knife Shop Falls amidst an otherwise quiescent, snow-laden forest in the Litchfield Hills.

Known formally as Yantic Falls, this cataract has also been referred to as “Indian Leap” for centuries, a name which hearkens back to an ancient battle between rival Native American tribes of Southern New England.


Shipyard Abyss

Sunlight struggles to reach the depths of a dark ravine where Mine Brook plunges over tiers of jagged bedrock in an eager race to join the Connecticut River nearby.
