June 15, 2019 – Yantic Falls – Connecticut

Today Shadow, Wilma, My Mom, and I Adventured to Yantic Falls in Norwich, Connecticut.  Yantic Falls is approximately forty feet in height, and is sourced from the Yantic River.  It falls from below a dam, and plunges into a gorge before entering the pool below.  There is a walking bridge above the Falls.  The Falls is famous for its’ history as a battleground of the Mohegan Indians back in the 1600s.

We had a spectacular Adventure to the Yantic Falls, our second stop on an afternoon of Adventures.  I found myself quite frustrated as the Falls was very challenging to locate.  However we persevered and eventually made it to this stunning Falls.  Our journey began with a walk across the bridge above the Falls, viewing a train bridge to the right, and views of the dam and gorge to the left.  We sauntered across the bridge, and down a small trail before climbing up to a small bridge above the railroad tracks.  Finding ourselves on what appeared to be a private yard, we headed back across the walking bridge, taking in the sites and sounds of this spot.

After this little walk we headed over to the Falls, snapping many photos along the way.  We soon found a trail that went down to the rocks, and into the gorge.  Shadow continually hoped to dive into the water, but unfortunately there were no clear paths available for a swim.  However, we enjoyed the view, and attempted many selfies before heading back up for yet another angle of the scenic falls.  We relaxed a bit in the grass, while Shadow and Wilma ended our visit officially with some enthusiastic rolls.  So glad we did not give up on finding this Yantic Falls, a beautiful waterfall (Rating:  4).
