Another Indian summer day. This Fall has been a bit unusual for predicting peak colors as they appear muted from the warmth of the season.
Nonetheless, I have read of the Mount Equinox skyline drive and knowing it was only opened from Memorial Day through the end of October decided this was pretty much the final day I could get there this year.
It’s a gated road and costs $20 per vehicle (with an additional $5 per passenger) to drive through. There are several scenic vistas along the way to the top.
Once at the top you’re greeted by a kind caretaker of the $1 million visitors center at the top which has a history of the monks that own the mountain and the related history.
From there you can take a short 1/2 mile hike to lookout rock or one of many longer trails down the mountain side.
You then return down the mountain as you came but in low gear given the steepness. Pause again for the lovely yet differing views.
Given my life experiences, I try and no longer wait for “next time”.
This is a non-promotional blog. I am not a photographer nor am I selling anything through this blog. Professionally I am a Business Transformation Specialist focused on gaining efficiencies and reducing costs for major corporations. Recent life experiences made me better appreciate the present and all that can be seen by increasing my focus and attention on my surroundings. I always enjoyed going out and exercising and I would look but I did not see as my attention was on resolving some problem. Captured through pictures and sharing insights about various locations, I hope others can enjoy my research and insights and allow themselves to pause a few moments and truly appreciate and learn new things. When you follow me that is my only gift. To know I have touched you enough to want to follow the blog.
Respectfully (Stay Safe),
