Connecticut State Park Journeys: Lamentation Mountain

My middle daughter fractured her foot in October so our hiking has been minimal. Boo. I’ve been able to go out with my sister a couple of times and we checked Lamentation off our state park list. We paired it with Giuffrida Park because Lamentation isn’t that big of a place.

Here’s the track I followed, it was a 10k, just over six miles total:

I’m getting pretty close to the 30 park milestone. Many to still go, looking forward to the continuing challenge!

Connecticut State Park Journeys: Hammonasset

Hammonasset is a state park I’ve visited a bunch of times, but mostly to swim at the beach. Recently I went to the state park to experience other parts of it. I drove to the Meig’s Point Nature Center to do some exploring. The nature center was closed unfortunately. Lots of people were camping at the campground and walking the trails, popular activity even for a Monday!

This is a Connecticut state park to have on your list for summer 🙂
