Here are some photos from a recent hike — the most humid hike ever — in a Connecticut forest like a terrarium, just us and the moss and the mushrooms and the millipedes. Very little light worked its way into these woods. No breezes either, except for when we were at the very top of whichever ridge we wound our way around.
If you visit Chatfield Hollow, make sure you stop in the nature center and see the three-legged turtle. There's also a book of photos of the park's construction by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
Here's some music suitable for this time of year. With the exception of the Jarvis Cocker track on the A-side it's mostly old favorites rather than shiny new stuff.
