Eagle rock. Painted Rocks

Just two of many along Connecticut roads. These rocks have been painted by locals because they already resemble the figures they paint onto them. It's better than graffiti. In Marlborough there is an eagle's head and a snake. The eagle head was circled by American flags for Independence Day.

Painted Rock. Painted Rocks

Driving along highway 66 out of nowhere these two beautiful rocks appear -- a snake/lizard and an eagle. They are very eye-catching. They are a few miles apart along the highway on either side of Marlborough and there isn't a lot of room to stop, but they are definitely something to keep your eyes open for.

Disembodied Snake Head

On Route 66 in Marlborough, CT there is a large disembodied snake's head painted on an outcropping of rocks. In the summer of 2002 the rocks were painted to resemble a coiled snake, but apparently someone thought it was too threatening. The coiled snake body has been painted black. The head is still distinctly a snake, yet it also has two turtle feet. It is very similar to Eagle Rock in the town of Hebron, also on Route 66 several miles to the east.
