A new “Tales From the Trails” video has been released, this one about the Mattabesett Trail in central Connecticut.
This one is close to my heart. The summer after I moved back to Connecticut from Pennsylvania, I hiked the entire length of the Mattabesset with two of my closest friends. It’s one of my favorite memories.
So the shoot for this video was fun, a bit like coming home after exploring many other trails around the state. The section of trail above the ‘twin reservoirs’ has always been a favorite day hike, and it looked spectacular adorned in fall foliage. I also had the pleasure of interviewing Christine Woodside. Chris is a writer, and edits the CFPA’s “Connecticut Woodlands” magazine. That showed in a very thoughtful and quietly passionate interview.
Chris also brought along her poodle, Talley, who managed to trot into frame and share the view at exactly the right time. As Chris said “We couldn’t have rehearsed that!”
