I love this quote...taken at Walden Pond.
There is something so perfect about a walk in the woods. And when that walk happens in the fall in New England, its perfection is unmatched.
In 1938, a 104 mile railroad line, stretching from Boston to Northampton, was destroyed by a hurricane. Today, the Mass Central Rail Trail is being dug out and opened through 24 communities. It is enjoyed by walkers, runners, cyclists, snowshoers, cross-country skiers, and outdoor enthusiasts.
Over a century ago, this area manufactured woolen cloth. The only remains of this once bustling community are the foundation ruins.
There are two footbridges over a babbling brook that lines the trail. It is a delight for the senses. Sometimes you will see anglers enjoying their own piece of perfection and on some mornings you can see another piece of natural art...spiderwebs between the bridge rails, glittering in the sun, lined with dew drops.
Where is your outdoor happy place?
