Photos taken on afternoon of April 29, 2016-
from Rte. 142, south of Brattleboro, close to Guilford/Vernon.

Looking north, NH is on right side (Mt. Wantastiquet is the gray peak nearer to middle), Brattleboro VT on left:



Looking east, NH is in background-I love how the clouds reflect on the water:



Looking southwest-keeping lumber damp, as the dry weather means fire hazards are everywhere:



Looking west-a scenic turnaround spot:

Nice. I love the look of that spot. Looks like Litchfield County in CT (about 1hr north of me). Gravel road, leaves on ground, trees, no cars, just a nostalgic setting for me. I can hear the silence and the birds in that photo.


I wouldn't think Logs would catch on fire. Is that what the sprinklers were really for? Or maybe because they don't want the wood to dry out and crack for the mills who process it?

Thanks
Friday seems so long ago, now that it's overcast & rainy (forecast to remain the same for next several days).
Haven't been to Conn., I'm somewhat familiar with Western Mass.-is it a bit like that ?

Don't know, just guessing. It was a new sight to see for me, and I wanted to include brief description of what was in the photo.

Yeah, NW CT is similar to Western Mass except the hills are a bit smaller of course. Forests, less homes per square mile, ect. Even northern Fairfield county is similar with the less congestion, more rural areas, and dense woods.


Here's a couple of photos I posted from NW CT. Starting with the 2nd 3rd pic down. Then you'll see a view from a summit looking towards MA.


I'm usually the only one posting photos in that CT Photo thread. lol


Yesterday I posted some pics from Northern Fairfield County. Some cool spots there with hills, rivers, lakes, dirt roads.

Yeah, we had 9 straight days of Sun early April, that was amazing. Now 4 straight days of overcast. I hate it and it stinks for taking pictures.

Not that familiar with NW Connecticut, but I suspect it's similar to areas just across the border but feels less remote. And the hills difference.

Wikipedia density maps:

Spoiler




Other difference is the Connecticut river valley in Massachusetts at least north of Holyoke is a mix of small towns and rural land in a flat-ish valley with big hills nearby, the Connecticut side is more sprawled over.

Needs more hills.

Common to water logs. They dry out fast.
