Bluff Point: A new look at an old favorite
18 Feb 2021
After tramping for more than an hour over a semi-frozen salt marsh at Bluff Point in Groton, during a blinding snow squall reminiscent of a scene from “Dr. Zhivago,” our hiking group finally pushed through the reeds toward a well-traveled path.
A midwinter freeze had hardened much of the mud, and a wolf-moon low tide temporarily kept the Poquonnock River at bay — conditions that likely occur only a couple times a year. Otherwise, we would have had to stick to the familiar main trail.
