Bethany Land Trust Trails
Bethany & Beacon Falls
Connecticut has three towns with fairly common female names. The interesting thing about this is that each town bearing a feminine name sort of matches the type of woman I think about when I picture a woman with that name.
Madison: Wealthy, white, yuppie, long straight hair, uppity.
Sharon: Older, stodgy, uptight, woodsy.
Bethany: Wallflower, plain, quiet, never know where she is, exactly.
Don’t bother arguing my comparisons. It’s just science. Although maybe my walks through Bethany will change my perception a bit. The local land trust’s website is not updated often, but the organization itself is very active and has been acquiring land and blazing new trails in 2020 and 2021 at least. I’ll figure it out.
