This is one of those places that you should consider yourself lucky to visit. Especially at sunset. Wow.

An absolutely gorgeous Friday evening was setting up, so I drove down to Burger Hill Park just outside of Rhineback to watch the sunset. A popular spot to catch the sunset, I'd been waiting for the right conditions and tonight was nearly perfect. There is no marked trail, but an obvious wide path heads through open fields directly up to the top of the hill.

As you climb the hill, views west to the Catskills unfold.

With autumn fast approaching and prime apple picking season nearly upon us, we headed over to Hilltop Orchards in rural Richmond, Massachusetts today to visit the farm store and winery as well as walk the beautiful orchards.
The bucolic orchards are located up a hillside off of Route 295 just past the New York state line.

Visited Mass Audubon's 262 acre Canoe Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary in Pittsfield, Mass today. Due to high levels of humidity, the chance of thunderstorms, and wanting an easier walk I chose this location. Although located only a mile away(as the crow flies) from Pittsfield's city center, the Sanctuary seems worlds away. Trails are all level and easy walking through wetlands and woods.
