Glacial Potholes, the Bridge of Flowers, and Art -- the Beauty of Shelburne Falls

One reason that I kike living in western Massachusetts, in addition to the great colleges and universities in our area, not to mention the wonderful elementary and private as well as public high schools, is the beauty of the area.

Today, we took a lovely drive to Shelburne Falls where we saw not only glacial potholes, but also the Bridge of Flowers, and a lot of art, both indoors and out.

Other highlights included a ride on the over 100 year old trolley and a stop at a soda fountain that is still operating in an old fashioned pharmacy.

 No wonder that  this area inspires so many artists and writers, plus educators.
