Bonnie Brae Campground
These next few High Point stops are going to be much quicker than we wanted, but we have friends we are eager to meet up with in Maine. We have also spent a few times in different parts of Massachusetts so we don't mind that we'll just be zipping through this time.
It was a short and pleasant drive through some very pretty countryside that reminded us of where we used to live in Upstate NY.
I couldn't get my camera out fast enough but we had just come out of a very large turn. The way this wall was painted made it feel like we were on a racetrack.
We had a very nice campsite with our own deck at Bonnie Brae Campground. It's a small, private park with nice natural landscape. Very green. We paid $40 a night for FHUs. Site #25. The owners were very nice and came right over to see if we needed any help getting in to our spot as it was rather tight with a large stump on one side. They even trimmed some branches out of the way for us. No problem though, Steve backed right in like a pro!
We took a little drive through the cute town later. The campground is just up the hill from a cute lake. We did some shopping then relaxed at camp.
Many pretty buildings and churches with lots of very nice people.
Well, most of the people. Except this guy. I guess this is what you put on your truck when you're an A$$hole from Massachusetts. Loud and Proud :-)
The High Point here is another beautiful mountain with a large tower. Mount Greylock is located in the Berkshire Mountains, and is the highest mountain in Massachusetts at 3,491 feet. It can be seen for miles around, and is very impressive as it rises nearly 2,700 feet above the surrounding town of Adams, Massachusetts. It is a "monadnock", which is a lone, isolated mountain rising steeply above the surrounding area.
At the top there are 365 degrees of beauty as well as the 93-foot-high Massachusetts Veterans War Memorial Tower.
The light was at the time the strongest beacon in Massachusetts, with a nighttime visibility range of up to 70 miles.
This cute pavilion is also used as an emergency lodge.
A cute sign stating "Bear Right" ahead to visit their roadside stand.
It was a short but nice visit. There is so much to see outside of Boston. I'm sure we'll be back in the future to spend more time in these mountains.
