While Stef and my mom did girl things, and Helaine prepared for another guest tonight, I set out with my dad for more picture taking. Originally I thought we’d go to Campbell Falls in Norfolk, CT. It’s nearly an hour and a half away and as time drew closer it seemed farther. I spent part of last night looking for ideas online and came up with Wadsworth Falls in the Rockfall section of Middlefield. It’s around a half hour from here.
We headed out, guided by the GPS. I didn’t bother to check the routing, which wasn’t what a local would have chosen. It didn’t make any difference. We made it there close to schedule.
Wadsworth Falls is a small state park. There is a nice size parking area and then a short walk downhill to the base of the falls. My dad, nearly 83, had no trouble with the walk. There is excellent access for photography, though the rocky path for a closer view was a little too slippery for my dad. He was not disappointed.
There was a couple there when we arrived, but they soon left leaving the waterfall to us alone. It is a beautiful place and totally unexpected. Twenty four years in Connecticut, I’d never heard of it!
What a find!
