Greylock Summit


It's a little after the fact, but I wanted to share these photos of the incredible cloud masses and fall color my friend Mary and I found at the summit of Mt. Greylock last week. It was a fantastic hike. I made Mary go waaaaaaay farther than she'd anticipated, but the reward? An incredible view from Stony Ledge, which the last photo only hints at. I love Western Mass in the fall. (plus, how cool is that ceiling in the war memorial tower??)

Thank you so much for your comments, ladies!

Jennifer--that tower is the War Memorial Tower that stands at the very summit of Mt. Greylock (tallest peak in MA). It was originally intended to be a beacon in Boston harbor, but was repurposed for the mountain. I can see its beacon light from my bedroom, a pinprick on the horizon....How cool is that, right? :) BTW, now I have a serious desire to watch The Dark Crystal. Haven't seen that in eons!
