Connecticut is a pretty scenic state, let's here some of our favorite pieces of architecture, scenery, slice of nature etc.

I think the Guilford Green is quintessential Connecticut. Pretty, historic, functional and only a short walk to the water.

And I'll throw out Harkness Park in Waterford as an under-appreciated gem.
Harkness Park is a beautiful place but hard to find, I only know about it because I live in the Waterford area.

So I googled Harkness State Park and found this photo:

If this doesn't beg for a caption this photo thread I don't know what does. I'm thinking something like:
"Pilgrim detective captures alleged Michael Jackson wardrobe thief." But I'm sure someone else can do better.

That is a beautiful drive, but more often than not the bikes ruin it for me--and I'm a biker. It's an absolutely brutal place to have bikes and cars interacting because it is so scenic but you really have to focus on the road instead. When I am on a bike I feel like I'm either holding up a mile of traffic or about to get killed. When I am in a car I feel like I am either going to drive into the water or kill a biker.

I hear the north end of Hartford is a lovely place for a midnight stroll.
