Summer is a great time to experience southern Connecticut’s great outdoors.  Hiking, fishing or just casually strolling down a nature trail is not only relaxing but pleasurable activities.    Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden is a great place to do all those things, with a recent caveat.  Snakes. 

According to reports, the Sleeping Giant Park Association shared two recent photos of a pair of Copperhead snakes at the park.  When you do visit the park that offers upcoming views of Fall foliage, fishing, hiking mountain biking or other activities watch for snakes.
