Wednesday, June 7, 2017 – Kent Falls State Park, Connecticut


In the morning, Tom and I drove about an hour north of Ridgefield to Kent Falls State Park, a small park in the Litchfield Hills with a cute covered bridge and a nice hiking trail leading past an appealing series of waterfalls and cascades with a total drop of 250 feet.

We stopped for lunch in Torrington, Connecticut, at the Twin Colony Diner. The soup was superb, but the entrees were terrible. Not recommended.

In the evening we went to see our niece Cailin play violin with the symphonic orchestra in the East Ridge Middle School spring concert. I know what you might be thinking about a middle school concert, but it was really good!

After the concert, John, Kathy, Ryan, Cailin, Tom and I went to dinner at the Hideaway Kitchen & Bar, an upbeat pub with fantastic food near their home in Ridgefield. Then Ryan took Tom and me on a beer run while he told us about his upcoming summer plans to lead groups of teenagers on bicycling trips down the West Coast before beginning his Army Black Hawk pilot training in the fall.
