This image was taken at Lovers Leap in New Milford Connecticut prior to it becoming a State Park, its peaceful and calm atmosphere makes this place a favorite of both local residents and visitors alike. The river that flows past it is the Housatonic that starts its run from Massachusetts working its way south to southeast through Connecticut and finally pouring its mass amounts of water into the Long Island Sound between the towns of Stratford and Milford.
Lovers Leap has since become a State Park and driving up to the cliffs is now prohibited, the parking lot is located down near the old Lovers Leap Iron Bridge which has since been restored and a hiking trail on the old road takes you up to ledges.
Visiting New Milford and its surrounding towns is a must if ever in the area, its quaint old New England style architecture and history makes it worth the stop but be sure to research the area before planning a trip because there is just so much to see both natural and manmade.
