October 8, 2013

Kent Falls State Park sign

Kent Falls is a series of waterfalls on Falls Brook, a tributary of the Housatonic River in the Litchfield Hills, in the southern Berkshires. The falls drop 250 feet in under a quarter mile. The largest cascade drops more than 70 feet into a reflecting pool, before traveling over the lesser falls.

The falls are part of Kent Falls State Park, a state park located in the town of Kent, Connecticut. In addition to its scenery, the park offers opportunities for hiking, fishing, and picnicking. The park has a replica of a covered bridge that allows visitors to cross the brook and access the falls.

After taking a photo of Karen Duquette by Kent Falls, Lee Duquette told her to turn and face the other way. Actually, Karen likes the first photo best, because she learned in photography school that people should be looking into the picture, not out of the picture. By doing it both ways, Lee has also learned that now.

Driving on down the road in the rural town village of New Preston, Lee spotted another waterfall. This waterfall was not readily visible from the town's tiny (but chic) shops. To catch a glimpse of the waterfall, the two RV Gypsies pulled into a small parking area?on East Shore Road on route 45 which gave them a view of the falls. It’s serene and special and the house at the top of the waterfall almost looked like it sits right on top of the falls themselves. The house is barely visible at the top of the photo shown below, but there are more photos further down this page. The dam is part of the system that impounds Lake Waramaug.

Then the two RV Gypsies walked behind the perfectly curated greenery store Pergola to get a closer view of this waterfall and the house at the top of the dam.

From this location behind the store, The two RV Gypsies were surprised to see that there was a second waterfall that could not be seen from the previous place the two RV Gypsies stood to take photos.

The two RV Gypsies decided to take a short walk to the bridge around the corner to see the top of the falls and the view from the other side of the bridge.
