This is 7 of 7 posts of photographs that I took during a recent trip to Putnam Memorial State Park in Redding, CT.

9. PHILIP'S CAVE – Local legend says a shallow cave in this rock outcrop was used by one Mr. Philips. Philips was a soldier who returned after the war to live in this cave. He led the life of a hermit, including liberating an occasional chicken or produce from local farmers. He was evicted by the community. Another version said he was “permanently removed”.

Since you have no comment here, I'll take this space. Interesting, but maybe also sad story of the soldier. it happens often that when they come back from war, they have experienced too much to be able to move on with the rest of society.

By the way, am trying to alert everyone why might have wanted to link on Sunday onnn All Seasons (June 25) and couldn't. The owner found the bug and fixed it! So, hope to see you back coming Sunday! Have a great rest of the week:)
