Butterworth Brook Reservoir


Have you been to Sleeping Giant State Park?  I spent a long lunch there today, but not where you'd expect. Northwest across Tuttle Avenue, the Butterworth Brook property is not developed - no trails yet - but this time of year is really worth a look...

Enter along Butterworth Brook






Into the forest, and up the hill - it wouldn't be Sleeping Giant without a rock ledge to climb



You're never really alone in the forest - 



Heading back down, the reservoir peeks through the trees - 



Autumn reflections




And here's where a point and shoot, auto focus camera doesn't quite catch the shot I wanted - the flock of geese taking off just behind that branch the camera focused on.  


What do you think, great property to wander around?

  1. Really beautiful colours, and great shots! I don't blame you not wanting to head into the cold stuff yet....

  2. Glad you made it to that area - it really is lovely - and it's true, the camera just doesn't seem to be able to capture the "wow!!!" factor with any reliability. Your pictures, however, do a really good job!
