Abstract water patterns

On the Appalachian Trail south of Kent, Connecticut.


I hiked south on the Appalachian Trail from Rt. 341 in Kent to Bull’s Bridge along Schaghticoke Ridge.


There was moving water in all of the streams and while Thayer Brook is the biggest one and has the most photo ops or moving water, this small stream at the southern end of the ridge proved better for these kinds of abstract moving water shots.


Hiking north to south I was going against the grain of the 30+ thru hikers I passed along the 8 mile tough stretch of trail. I've never seen that many thru hikers in a day before and I was told that the big bubble of them is moving into Connecticut this week so there will be at least this many every day for a week or two. I'll see them again up in Massachusetts as I maintain a section up there too.


I stepped over a large downed tree (we call it a "step over") that will need to be cleaned up and there was a "leaner" that forces the taller hikers to bend over to get under it. That too will need to be pulled down and cut up. That's another trip in the next few days with more tools than a camera.
