04.10.2020-2 Invitation to a hike

Wouldn’t it be nice to head out for a hike here?  This is Quabbin Watershed Gate 15, an old road that eventually disappears into the reservoir as so many others do. It runs along Atherton Brook, I call it Atherton Brook Road, and has been the site of many cascade shots and a few from a nice little hardly noticed waterfall.  If you click the link and scroll down a bit you’ll come across the most interesting swirl I’ve ever seen…spoiler alert- some of you have already seen it.

Anyway, this is part of the road that passes above the waterfall and brings you to the water’s edge.

I haven’t done this walk since last year but it won’t be much longer and I’d like to see the waterfall again after all this rain we’ve been having.

  8. It’s not the road not taken, just the road not taken since the last frost.

    I love the image, the road and even the name of it. There’s something very appealing about the practicality of that name. The haze of green and all the fine detail is magical. You had fun with this one, didn’t you?

    • Yes, I did enjoy both the making and the processing. The name I am not sure about. I don’t see one on any of the Quabbin maps I have so gave it the name of the brook. But someone who used to be assistant superintendent there didn’t correct me on FB so I may have been good at guessing. Glad you love this one, Lynn.
