Mystic River Reflection
|Photos by Sabrina Ryan
New England's most famous Mystic River is captured in this marvelous autumn reflection scene. The intriguing Mystic name evolved from the Wampanoag's Muhsuhtug, meaning big river. Found in the quiet corner of Connecticut, the river splits the Mystic zip code and the towns of Groton and Stonington. Its connection to Fishers Island Sound and the Atlantic lead to an early development as a ship-building and fishing area. The historic seafaring towns, Groton and Stonington, date back nearly 300 years.
