Well, browsing might be a better word for it. We couldn’t really hike because the trails up in back were very muddy from the rain the night before. It’s just as well, because we got to spend more time in front looking through the butterfly gardens and at the animals.
What a surprise! This place was great. We have passed by a few times driving up the Connecticut border with New York, heading towards Sharon and Lakeville, but never gave it serious thought to go in. I guess we felt inspired this time. It is really kept up well because it is owned and run by the National Audubon Society. Believe it or not, we were the only ones on the entire property during this visit. Remarkable, because the weather was prefect and just about everything was in bloom. Did I mention the butterfly gardens? Here, take a look…
I mean, if you are into this kind of stuff, you can’t get much better than this. There was a pretty cool barn and a lake with a waterfall.
Also, there were a few habitats for animals in need of rehab. It kind of reminded me of a place I used to go.
All in all, it is a great place to walk around and unwind. I also think it is a great place to bring your…significant other.
