11.26.2021 Falls Friday

Rainy day here in Western Massachusetts.  And I’m still in a Tryptophan stupor from yesterday’s gorge. Been napping with Bentley much of the day after our usual 2 a.m. nature call for the both of us. After our day of … Continue reading

11.24.2021 Waterfall Wednesday-Atherton Brook Rocks 2

Atherton Brook, like Dean Brook, draws me back repeatedly for an almost endless collection of cascades. While some are more spectacular than others, especially the waterfall I linked to in the previous post, all have something interesting to share. I’ll … Continue reading

11.05.2021 Flashback Friday-Murphy Falls in Autumn

After yesterday’s post from Dean Brook and reference to Murphy Falls, I thought I’d share this old image from 2015.  Similar has appeared in portrait format back then but this is the first appearance in landscape. And of course countless … Continue reading

11.04.2021 Roadside Brook and Star

After spending some time enjoying the rising sun and foliage in North Quabbin, I drove through Shutesbury and down Sand Hill Road.  Dean Brook runs alongside and, as you’ve seen before, over a little waterfall that I call Murphy Falls. … Continue reading

10.06.2021 Waterfall Wednesday

When visiting Acadia N.P. I always try to take in this waterfall. Sometimes the water flow is a trickle but this time it was heavy as we had rain off and on for most of the time we were there. … Continue reading

06.03.2021 West Branch of Fever Brook Cascade

I considered calling this a waterfall because of its clean flow.  But in reality it is water leaking through an old dam that created a pond I visit often along State Forest Road in North Quabbin. Different parts of the … Continue reading

06/02/2021 Rainy Day Cascade

This brook only flows after a rainy day, or heavy snow melt, so I was lucky to be in Quabbin Park on a gentle rainy day while it was running strong. And, of course, a little natural saturation aids the … Continue reading

05.12.2021 Water Wednesday-Chesterfield Gorge

Note the lack of “fall” after water.  I had intended to post the waterfall I visited on Monday, it is really more a couple of cascades, but decided it wasn’t working.  At least not at this point in time. Rocks … Continue reading

05.05.2021 Vernal Cascade

There is a little brook that only flows in the spring along Ware-Enfield Road in Quabbin Park. It is dry, or almost so, most of the year. But after a rain or a good spring melt, if we’ve had a … Continue reading
