Rare Gator Sighting
Al E. Gator, Glastonbury
April 1, 2012
I can confirm this still exists in 2021.
There is a tiny pocket of people in this East Glastonbury/Hebron/Marlborough area that love their roadside painted rocks. My title here isn’t actually about how rare alligators are in Connecticut (rare as in “don’t exist”) but rather the fact that no more than 10 people pass this guy every day and maybe one person per week that doesn’t live out here.
All that means is that I appreciate this rock even more than the fancy popular eagle and snake/turtle out on route 66. I should warn you, if you are merely out to kill time in order for your kid to nap in the car and you scoot off of route 2 up here to Goodale Hill Road to search for the gator, just past him traveling east the road turns to a dirt road and your kid will wake up.
Yes, there is a populated dirt road in Glastonbury. Crazy.
