Day Tripping

It was another gorgeous day in the MA...a perfect day for a road trip.  I set off on a scenic tour of the western half of the state.  

First stop:

Every time I drive over this bridge I'm all I should stop and walk across it sometime.  Well today was sometime.  I walked across the bridge and enjoyed the views of the Connecticut River.

The bridge is super high.

I started here...

And walked all the way to another town!

For my second stop, I wanted to find these old rusty trucks that I passed by 5 summers ago while driving canoe trips for camp.  I knew the general direction and I assumed that I would recognize it when I got there.  First I took a 30 minute detour to a DIFFERENT state...totally on purpose (not on purpose):

But then...on my way back from New Hampshire, I turned right, headed towards Vermont and I found them!

When I went to turn around I saw this:

Yes that sign is 2' by 4'.  Oops!  But to be fair, the old trucks were right on the corner.  Corners don't count...right?

Stop three was Millers River for a snack.  I hopped the guard rail so I could stick my toes in the river.

Stop four was the Rt. 202 Quabbin Reservoir overlook

My fifth and final stop was one of my favorite places in the world.  It is a pull off on Rt. 202 where you can see for miles and miles.

In the fall when the leaves turn, all you can see are reds, oranges, and yellows until they fade into the horizon.

What did YOU do on this gorgeous day?
