Mt. Greylock

Time to get high again! Not as high as Whiteface Mt., but the views are still spectacular.

This time we took our motorcycle to the mountain's summit in Massachusetts. It's a great afternoon ride covering three states, NY, VT, and MA.

At the top there is a war memorial that adds to the ambiance. If you click on the pictures you should be able read about it.

Throughout the mountainside there is a myriad of hiking trails, including the Appalachian Trail. It's a long walk to the the end in either direction!

There is even an emergency shelter for hikers if the weather turns stormy, complete with fireplaces and wood, with benches to sleep on.

In the distance you can see all the gigantic windmill generators near Jiminy Peak Ski Resort (try cicking on the picture to see them better).

The trip back down the mountain on the bike is especially fun. Dave usually turns the engine off so we just glide along silently downhill. Check out the reflection on his helmet.

Fall is definitely here and we are getting into our favorite season for motorcycle riding, both on and off the road.
