Went for a nice walk along the Burbank Trail, which is part of Yokun Ridge in the southern Berkshires this morning. The trail actually follows a ridge along the southern end of Lenox Mountain and is accessed from a parking lot along Lenox Road known as Olivia's Overlook. The east facing view of Stockbridge Bowl from Olivia's Overlook is nothing short of spectacular.
Had a little extra time to do some exploring in the Berkshires, so decided to visit Windsor Jambs in the Windsor State Forest. Just getting to the Jambs can be a very challenging experience this time of year. A former(now unmaintained) parking lot is found along gravel Schoolhouse Road in the extreme eastern end of Berkshire County. Winter is in full effect here, but the gravel road was manageable today. I was forced to park along the road due to snow and ice elsewhere, and then put my micro spikes on to make my way from there.
Back home in the valley, strong snow squalls began blowing though during the afternoon, making it finally begin to feel like winter. The scene below is from Nassau's village gazebo.
