More Berkshire favorites

In trying to catch up from the late summer we will just have to consolidate a few things. A lot of delights that went on before, after, or in the middle of our Road Scholar (Elderhostel) programs will just plain have to be thrown into a basket. It's hard, as one looks back, to pick the best of the little sidetrips, but our drive to the top of Mount Greylock, the highest point in Massachusetts, stands out. Also high on the list were the homes of Edith Wharton(The Mount) and Herman Melville(Arrowhead). Mention should also be made of Keene, NH, Shelburne Falls( The Bridge of Flowers), and the Hancock Shaker Village. If you would like some additional pictures of each of these, you can go to my Flickr photstream and browse through the various sets available there.
