This park was created on the site of the old mill.
A lovely place to wander, listen to the rushing water, and
imagine what things were like back in the mid 1800s.
It was developed just 2 or 3 years ago.
There are nice trails and lookoffs, well maintained.
Sadie leading the way. Decisions...decisions...

I thought I would just throw this in.

And that was our little adventure to Rocknotch.
I was bushed, but glad we had gone
so I could share this little place
Have a good week!
