Autumn in the Berkshires

The Berkshire Mountains are the western “outback” of Massachusetts. But they are not wilderness, and towns such as Lee, Lenox, and Stockbridge have been around for hundreds of years retaining their New England charm. The mountains are populated mainly by deciduous trees, which turn into a gorgeous palette of reds, oranges and yellows in mid-to-late October. Happily, Susan and I were headed west on a beautiful October day and spent a few hours enjoying this wonderful place at its best time of year.
