That Colorful Time of Year

Columbus Day weekend Deb took a class at Snow Farm in Williamsburg, MA, which is located just slightly northwest of Amherst. I took the opportunity to tag along and visit the area, doing some hiking and picture taking while she was learning new pottery techniques. The weather was absolutely perfect all three days.  The skies were a clear autumn blue.

This is my first post of photos for that long weekend.

Across from Chapel Falls there's a substantial ledge that rock climbers use to test their skills. Fortunately, there's also a hiking trail up and I was rewarded with this:

Chapel Falls is in the town of Ashfield, that happened to be holding its fall festival that weekend. I walked around the festival for a bit.  I like shiny highly polished metal cars, creating, in this case, yet another selfie.
