New Hartford gets Scenic

Yesterday we drove out to the sticks for what we can only assume is a typical day in the life of New Hartford. We began with a lovely hike around Lake Mcdonough:

We ended up at the Saville Dam. There is a strict 'no face-sitting' rule at the dam:

Even out in the country, the socioeconomic class divisions are obvious:

On our way back into town, we stopped to talk to this local goat:

You can really work up an appetite after a long hike! It was time for a gourmet country meal:

1 banana, sliced
1 jar Peter Pan peanut butter
1 box Ritz crackers
Combine and enjoy. Serve with a Reisling.

Then is it was time for a good ol' fashion book-burnin'!

We spared this classic:

As the sun went down, the neighbors came out and a hootenanny ensued. 3 different kinds of potato salad were served. The party ended on the early side, as one of the locals had to wake up early this morning for a cow slaughter. In Northwest CT, they work hard and play hard.

  1. I especially love that one of the books being burned is the weight watchers recipe book. Who needs that when you have 3 different types of potato salad?
