Finding relief from the heat in East Haddam
East Haddam — The heat and humidity Thursday drew a small crowd to the refreshing waters of Chapman Falls at Devil’s Hopyard State Park.
Aiden Wilson, 10, of East Providence found some relief under the falls’ cascade. "It's hot and humid, so I thought let's go find a waterfall," Aiden's mother, Taschi, said.
"It's always fun here, it never disappoints," 13-year-old Johnathan Ventura said.
The falls, which drop the Eight Mile River 60 feet in elevation, are a popular spot for fishing, swimming and leaf-peeping. The name of the park is said to come from glacial potholes found in the area of the falls being formed when the devil, angry at getting his tail wet in the river, burned holes in the stone with his hooves as he hopped away.
