Spooked By A Highway Walking Path
When we parked and got out of the car, we got that weird feeling we got at the Keney Clock Tower; solitude. While the cars above whizzed by on I-91, we were the only ones in the large dirt lot under the hot summer sun.
Looking at the walking path, we thought that the winding maze was the last place you'd want to get caught with someone unhappy to see you. There was some evidence of visitors from graffiti and a few discarded containers.
Even a little unnerved by the vast empty structure, we steeled ourselves and got ready to go in and start exploring. We took out the camera, started recording and entered. About two steps in, an animal to our left rustling in the long grass and we quickly retreated backwards. At that we decided that maybe we would check out the overpass at a later date.
You can't really see the animal rustle in this video, but you can see the hasty retreat.
