Rural Connecticut - Lover's Leap and more!

 If you have never been...the actual "leap" is the rocky out-cropping on the right. If you click on the image you can see a tiny piece of the iron truss bridge.

There are still more images of rural Connecticut. In one of my earlier posts (way back in '09!) I shared a rare View Master disk a great mid-century image of Lovers Leap. (Click HERE to see that image.)

  While there may be a better history of Lover's Leap and the water's around it, I am still looking for the year the Shepaug Dam was built (which would have created the water the postcard holder would be standing in.) Since this card is from 1909, I am guessing that it was built at this point...or was it?  Here is another history of this wonderful Park
