Day 37 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways
After oatmeal doctored with some fruit, compliments of Julie, the dogs and I set off to Farmington, on the border of Litchfield County. The city is home to many historic sites, though I was most interested in Miss Porter’s School, an exclusive boarding school over 100 years old. My old college roommate attended high school here, and I was curious to know how she spent some of her formative years.
I only drove by the campus and got a glimpse of the classic buildings, but also passed by the lovely Farmington River. In hindsight, I probably should have stopped here for a walk, as the river was lined with trees in peak fall color. The vibrant oranges and reds reflecting off the calm water provided such a picturesque view that I missed my turn to Topsmead State Forest!ON THE ROAD AGAIN!
