Biked the Shelton Lakes Recreation Trail today. It goes from Route 108 right outside of the downtown, all the way to Huntington village. It's mostly gravel, which makes for difficult uphills, and there are quite a number, since the trail pretty much goes over the White Hills.
Check out this hanging tree, which rotted away in the grip of a grape vine. But the vine is still hanging on to the tree. Two big pieces are suspended above the forest floor. Fascinating.

Had a visit from author Bill Ectric last week - what a great, down-to-earth guy. And considering the fantastic nature of his fiction, that's a wonder. Get yourself a copy of his novel, Tamper, which I reviewed when it first came out.

Sometime make sure you check out the Hempstead House(s) in New London. The big wooden one above was built in the amazing early date of 1678, and both survived the burning of New London by Benedict Arnold.
