Doane’s Falls


Yesterday, I explored Doane’s Falls, a series of five waterfalls along a brook in Royalston, Massachusetts. It is part of the state parks system. Trails bring you along the falls and into hiking trails that eventually lead to a reservoir and dam. My wife and I had planned to explore some waterfalls when I returned from Central America last summer, but I came back to a drought. We’ve had some good spring rain to feed these falls.

Winter is Coming

Monday brought our fist bit of snow that stuck and made the world look so pretty. I was not able to get out that day, but did go out on Tuesday and made these images on my local hiking trails. It’s getting a bit colder, but we just have to remind ourselves that is what happens around now and pull out our sweaters and warm gloves. And now that the semester has ended, I can say/sing:

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

For those of you who mistook the title thinking this would be a Game of Thrones post, here is something for you…the other kind of Snow
