Kent, Connecticut

Kent Connecticut

Kent is one of the most quaint towns in the state of Connecticut.  May consider it an artists colony, particularly in the summer.  Its most noticeable attraction is Kent Falls, arguably the most scenic waterfall in the state.  There is a pedestrian walkway alongside the falls that will lead you to the top and which offer some magnificent overlooks.  Unfortunately the walkway was closed the day I went there to photograph the falls due to some needed re-construction work.

With my photo shoot short changed by the closure of the pedestrian I decided to stop to stop at the McCormick Deering - Kent Machinery Museum.

From the museum it was into the center of town where the wife spent time browsing in the many gift and antique shops.  As noted above, the town is also an artist colony.

Now my ambition is to revisit Kent and take more photographs of the falls from the walkway to the top.
