This is probably the best vantage point for viewing the Quabbin Reservoir from the ground. I seriously doubt I will ever get a drone, but I also seriously doubted I would ever get a CD player.
This time we are viewing from the north over Dana with Prescott in the distance. Much farther off is Mount Zion, which is currently famous for being the future home of a bunch of rattlesnakes for the encouragement of their numbers. We don’t have many around here and the state is thinking of trying to help them along. Many local folks don’t think it’s a good idea and the media has whipped them up into a fearful frenzy with ideas of snakes hitching a ride in eagle talons and dropping in on a backyard barbecue. While they can certainly be dangerous, we have a lot more to worry about with ticks, mosquitoes and the occasional rabid raccoon which do not warn you ahead of time with a friendly rattle.
Anyway, this post is about the scenery, not the politics of Quabbin’s snakiness or lack thereof.
