At 9:30 am a group of nine warmly dressed scooterist started on their quest of Massachusetts' highest point, Mt. Greylock (3,491 feet.) The Journey along Rte 2 was spectacular, with splashes of fall foliage depending on elevation. The ride took about an hour and a half, from a little north of Albany NY to the summit. We had lunch at the Bascom Lodge, which in my opinions had delicious hamburgers, the whole menu was reasonably priced, and had many healthier menu choices. The lodge also has overnight accommodations for three seasons, that is also true with the food, so please check for availability. We walked around the summit. Currently there is a large fence around the Massachusetts Veterans War Memorial Tower, which is under repair. The Tower was build in 1932. The memorial was dedicated in June 1933 as a tribute to courage, endurance, loyalty and self-sacrifice, wherever these qualities have been shown, by the state’s men and women in the uniform of the state or nation. According to: http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/dcr/massparks/region-west/mt-greylock-state-reservation-generic.html.
The next couple of weeks Mt Greylock will provide awesome fall foliage views.
I was able the shoot off a few photos, they can be viewed at: http://www.charlesmosseyphotography.com/mt-greylock/
After getting some ice cream we ventured back under more pleasant temperature conditions!
