Macricostas Preserve

n Washington Connecticut, close by Lake Waramaug, is the Macricostas Preserve. This newer addition to Steep Rock Park, is well studied and documented, with several references to it on the web. A touching photo montage accompanied by piano is on YouTube and more technical information is available at the Steep Rock Land Trust website. The view in this painting is from one of the many footbridges that cross over Bee Brook, a tributary to the Shepaug River. The Brook winds through fields and woods, a varied landscape where boardwalk trails make the going easy and footing dry.
