As you may have guessed, I love this spot and try to find something new to share. Yesterday I tried to get an image of the majority of the Holyoke Range. Long Mountain and Rattlesnake Knob didn’t quite make it into the frame and there is Mount Nonotuck (Ha!…spellcheck wanted to make this “Non-stick”) and a bit more to the west across the Connecticut River, but from this spot it’s a pretty good look.

I am not sure how much autumn color we have left, but I’ll be out there again looking for more. I did find some at Enfield Lookout this morning so will share that tomorrow. Right now the camera is getting re-acclimated to warmth after this morning’s 24° chill.
I may have mentioned this before, and possibly you can tell by the sun’s angle, but the Holyoke Mountain Range is one of the rare east-west oriented mountain ranges. It also hosts part of the Appalachian Mountain Club managed Metacomet-Monadnock Trail as well as The New England Trail.
