|Admiring the CT River that flows through the Pioneer Valley|
from the Summit House porch
Yesterday, my DH & I drove north to Hadley, MA. Our destination was the Summit House on top of Mt. Holyoke. On the winding road up the mountain we drove past some hikers. The view from the parking lot at the summit was a tease of what awaited us. Climbing up the ramp/ then stairs, gorgeous views were in all directions! Walking around the "wrap around" porch of the newly renovated Summit House was definitely a treat! We live in a beautiful area of Western MA! Looking north my hometown of Amherst & also VT was visible. Looking south in the distance we viewed the Springfield, MA/ Hartford, CT area!
