Connecticut River Valley
The Connecticut River Valley is very fertile. The river overflows its banks in the spring, as the snowpack in Vermont and New Hampshire melts and raises the river level. That brings a new supply of silt to the fields adjoining the river.
These photos were taken on a plane arriving at Bradley International Airport, which serves Hartford, Connecticut, and Springfield, Massachusetts. We are about ten to fifteen miles north of Hartford, looking due south. I think at this point East Windsor is on the left (east of the river) and Windsor is on the right (west of the river).
