5.29.10 Chapel Falls

This past week I had the goal of visiting as many waterfalls in Western Massachusetts as I could. I didn’t get to quite as many as I would have liked, but Chapel Falls was very enjoyable.  It is one of many lovely properties of the Trustees of Reservations and is located in Ashfield, Massachusetts.  I’ll post a couple of other falls’ images soon.

Please be sure to click on the image to see a larger view.

This is the second level. The upper level is exiting a culvert and generally has a terrible glare.

The other side of the pool allows for a different view.

The third level has a few choices for views. The first is from atop some rocks in the middle of the stream. This second image shows that spot atop the rocks is a bit awkward position for photography when you use a tripod.

Crossing the stream and rocks gives a bit better view of the twin falls. Ordinarily the falls at this point is a large gush of water, but lack of recent rainfall allowed for the twin view.

And finally, just before getting to the lower portion where the falls end is a pool with a nice little slide.
