Spring Waterfall

Today I finally went out with my camera after trying to cut back on my gas miles. I went up to Enders State Forest in West Granby, CT. There is a series of several falls that you can view off a trail that follows the river. It is a beautiful area. I will be having an exhibit for the month of July at the Granby Library of my four seasons of waterfalls at Enders Forest. Details will follow as it grows closer.

The area the waterfall is located is off of Rt. 219.  There is a series of about 6 waterfalls in a half mile walk.  It is a very steep incline to the river at the bottom of the gorge the falls flow through.  It is a marvelous summer retreat.  The pools at the base of the different falls are frequently jumped into.  It is best to go up to the falls after a heavy summer rain, in order to be sure there will be water flowing down the river.

The State of Connecticut DEP stocks the rivers in Granby with salmon every year.  These are two of the workers after stocking the river at Enders today.  I missed them actually stocking the river, but got them as they were leaving.  I will have another opportunity to photograph the river stocking in May.
