I’m a big fan of the trails in the Town Forest (located in the “Wilton Alps” off Branch Brook Road) having traversed them for some years now. I’ve been back trekking them in earnest for the last six months after more than two years’ hiatus. You see, our beloved dog Tanzi (about whom I’ve written regularly in this column) and I would walk them together with great mutual enjoyment. When she died, it took away much of my enthusiasm for that route — too many memories.
But with a puppy arriving chez Hudspeth and old enough perhaps in another half-year to traverse the Town Forest with me, I figured I’d better get back into trail-walking shape. More recently, I’ve been jogging (certainly not very fast) over the Blue course that runs — about four miles, I think — around the perimeter of the Forest.
