Yesterday some friends invited me to meet up in Shelburne, MA and visit the Glacial Potholes.  I had visited the location a long time ago…read 40+ years…and was happily surprised to see color and patterns which I did not recall.  … Continue reading

10.06.2021 Waterfall Wednesday

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
