Bristol Pond is one of those perfect places to spend a sunny, fall afternoon. The pond, also known as Winona Lake, is a beautiful spot for canoeing, kayaking and fishing.
The Hogback Mountains sit along the eastern border of Bristol Pond, making the area especially scenic. You can access the pond off the Bristol-Monkton Road, a few miles north of the town of Bristol.
When I stopped by the pond a few days ago to admire the fall foliage, I was really happy to have my camera with me. Now I just need to buy a kayak.
