On Aug. 27, a group of 16 hardy Granby Land Trust members met in complete darkness at the Katan-Ensor Preserve trailhead and hiked by the light of their headlamps to Scarlet Tanager Lookout on the GLT’s Schlicht Family Preserve. From there, they watched dawn break over Granby. Don Shaw captured the magical moment with this stunning photograph.
The Schlicht Family Preserve is located in the GLT’s Old Messenger Road Preserves. It can be accessed via the Katan-Ensor Preserve at the end of Strong Road in West Granby. A trail map is available at granbylandtrust.org, via the Avenza app on your mobile device, and at the trailhead kiosk at the Katan-Ensor Preserve.
