Returning to the Land of Quabbin gave me an opportunity to reconnect with the East Quabbin Land Trust. They were having an open house at a recently purchased farm that also happens to be the location of Bell Rock. This was visited as part of a guided tour. Previous to this, I landed in Barre to further examine a reference to the Stone House and hike some Trustee of the Reservations land.

The Stone House reference comes by way of an old map. Although there is a small rock shelter in this area, I am of the mind it refers more to an imposing set of ledges nearby. The section of ToR land was new territory for me, although MANY years ago I visited the Indian Grinding Stone on this same property.

A night's camping, then it was off to Royalston. I got in my first visit of the famous Royalston Falls, preceded by seeing another site from my long ago past: Profile Rock. The day was finished off with a visit to the local library where I scoured old records for other sites of interest.
