The Sky's The Limit Challenge, Hike 5—Black Rock State Park

2 1/2 miles; Watertown, CT

Another of the TSTLC hikes, this time a long drive from home, out past Waterbury, CT. This particular hike was designated as “difficult.” It really wasn’t that bad, though. Short mileage, and c’mon, at least half of it was downhill.

Lotta Jacks along the trail. It’s such an interesting-looking plant.

There were some carved dates and initials right by the “selfie” spot. It looks to me like 1885? Maybe?

And here’s the selfie. I’ll admit to a bit of whining about it all being uphill, but the view was quite spectacular.
