Mountain Monument in Massachusetts

Mt. Greylock is the highest natural point in Massachusetts at 3,491 ft. with this 93 ft. monument crowning the summit.
Views of of up to 70-135 miles are possible into five different states: MA, NY, CT, VT, NH. However, on this day there was a thin layer of fog in the distance.
For six years I lived in a tiny town nestled in the valley of these Berkshire Hills. I didn't fully appreciate the beauty of the area until last October when I returned for a class reunion.

The beauty of the Berkshires - I have a friend with a cabin there. Love that foggy photo.

What a beautiful area! Isn't it funny how we don't really appreciate where we are ...we have to leave to become aware of what we had.

What a great vantage point for seeing the beautiful area. Carver, ABCW Team

It is a sad truth that we often don't appreciate what is on our doorstep until we leave and come back.
That monument is gorgeous.

Love the reddish hues starting to dot the hills. Funny how stepping away and then coming back to a place gives us a chance to see its true nature with fresh eyes. :)
