A bit of blogger’s license taken with the title I guess. For any reader unfamiliar with the story, the Quabbin Reservoir exists after the taking and razing of four towns (Enfield, Dana, Prescott and Greenwich) in Massachusetts in the 1930’s for flooding and providing Boston with drinking water. Homes and businesses were destroyed, cemeteries moved and all residents forced to relocate. So what once was a valley is now a body of water.
Ordinarily I visit the Quabbin by hiking through one of the more than 50 gates that were at one time country roads, many of which disappear into the water and, a few of which, resurface at the other side. However, today was rainy and a bit windy so I drove through the Park instead. At Enfield Lookout, I saw this scene and thought it made a good mood piece for the story. Many images exist from this spot of colorful days throughout the seasons, but I think this is fitting as well.
