Day trip 

Yesterday we got in the car early in the morning and headed west to The Berkshires. It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining. Our first stop was North Adams where we visited Mount Greylock, the highest point in Massachusetts. 


This is the Greylock War Memorial Tower at the summit. Unfortunately it was closed for renovations but we did walk all around the area and went into the lodge. 


The views from the top were just amazing. This is looking towards New York State. The clouds seemed low enough to touch. 


We also stopped at the Berkshire Mountain Bakery in Housatonic. It’s a tiny out of the way place with some of the best bread in the country. Along with three loaves of bread we got some cookies and yummy pastries. This croissant was gone moments after we got home. It was the best I’ve ever eaten.

    Ooh, yummy. I like those flakes in that croissant. They made good sandwich bread with melted cheese.

    WOW, what an amazing memorial that is. It reminds me of a chess piece. Great photos BTW.

    Beautiful photos! The clouds were amazing that day. I want to stay at the inn at the top someday. And I’m adding that bakery to my list for the next time I get out that way! Too bad there’s no scratch ‘n sniff technology yet.
