The end of the year's in site - with weather that rocks and rolls! Going from temperatures in the single digits - and ice storms - to 'warmth' reaching into the 50's was too much of a temptation. I took in Mt. Tom down by the Connecticut River, reuniting with an 'old' hiking partner from years past. Copious amounts of fog was covering all of western Massachusetts this day. But on top of the Mount, the fog parted just enough to allow a grand view westward. Nearby - a lesser view and the remains of an old stone crusher dating back to the days of the CCC. On the way back down the mountain road, I dove on in to the adjacent ravine to visit a series of cascades. This immediate area is the likely site of an old postcard depicting the "Triple Falls" and the "Old Hundred Brook".
