One Of The Oddest Geological Wonders Is Located Right Here In Connecticut

Known for its rolling hills and forests, it’s easy to forget that Connecticut was once home to volcanoes. But one of its most notable natural wonders is a testament to its long geological history and volcanic beginning. Sleeping Giant is a collection of trap rock ridges that has drawn visitors for years. But the view of the ridges is almost as fun as a visit to the park itself. Probably because the ridges look like a man asleep on his back!
