This is one of the rewards of paddling a kayak. The red of wild columbine, a contrast to lush greens of moss and fern, growing on rock walls lining the Housatonic River between Falls Bridge and Lovers Leap. The gardens of this shadowy grotto can only be seen from the water, as the hiking trails are far above in drier woods.
