Day Trippin': Kent, CT (and Surrounding Environs)

Porter and I spent the weekend in the lovely Kent, Connecticut where we saw lots of covered bridges...

laughed wildly in front of waterfalls...

befriended cows along the Appalachian Trail...

got very muddy at the fair...

risked life and limb for blog photos...

...and saw the world's most perfect tree.


  1. I wanted to pop in and thank you for inspiring me to start my very own blog.

    I think we share admiration for the Raj and so much more.

    Hope you'll drop in and check my posts when you have a moment.

  2. When I moved 8 years ago I landed in Kent, CT. I was there for 2 years before crossing the border to Millerton, NY. I was also lucky enough to Horse show many years ago on top of the Mountain. Wonderful pictures

    Love the orange shoes. And the tree is perfect.

    Apropos of nothing in particular, I find the Hovey sisters to be absolutely dead sexy. =)

    That is all.

  7. i couldn't love this series of images more.

    You two make me feel a serious inadequacy in the traveling department everytime I see these trips! Anyhow, beautiful shots.

    By the way, let's get dinner soon before summer ends?

  9. Those cows are really totally amazing. There's this little stairway leading you into the field next to the Kent School. The cows roam freely - and you can walk right through their pasture, along the Appalachian Trail. One girl cow seemed to like us quite a bit. She kept trying to lick our clothes and actually bit our friend's shorts (in a sweet way). It was very canine bovine.

  10. worth the risk, very funny pic

    wait, did we have a costume change as I see the muddy shoes from the fair come complete with skinny jeans?

  12. Skinny jeans appeared on day 2 -- so, yeah, it wasn't really "day trippin'" -- more "weekendin'"
