While in Pomfret, CT, we visited Wolf Den State Park with Gilly (Chris’ Mom), Rusty (Gilly’s dog) and Ashley (Madison’s dog).
The park is named after the former home of the last wolf in CT, which was killed by Israel Putnam in 1742. You can hike to the old den and even crawl inside there like I did a bunch of times as a kid. But on this day we just took a short hike through the woods.
Gabe played with the dogs and Julia showed them how she sticks out her tongue ;). After the hike Gabe got to ride his bike at the campground.
Gilly blew kisses at Julia – I love this sweet photo of them!
She also taught Gabe the buttercup test, so he checked all of us with buttercups to see if we had the telltale yellow glow under our chins! It was a truly lovely day. My favorite part was right before we went home when Gilly brought me down another trail so I could photograph some rare Lady Slippers – I’ll share those pics later :)!
