Mount Greylock Views

Mount Greylock view
When you reach the top of Mount Greylock in the Berkshire Mountains, you are rewarded with lovely views. It looks a bit like a puzzle, the Mount Greylock views below and across (one can see more mountains in the distance).

greylock tower
If you climb this tower on the top of Mount Greylock, you see even more views. My husband and two sons climbed to the top. My daughter and I wandered around below, looking down at the landscape.

There is an inscription in honor of soldiers at the base of the Mount Greylock tower. You can also find two quotes from Henry David Thoreau at the top of Mount Greylock. Supposedly, he too as some point in the 19th century climbed this mountain.

I don’t know who the man in the yellow shirt is, but he added a nice contrast to the scene of the lake or pond below the mountain.

Need refreshment? There is a little cafe in the Bascomb Lodge at the top of Mount Greylock.

At the entrance to the Bascomb Lodge is a butterfly garden. I’ll save my butterfly shots for another post. There are also butterfly-friendly flowers all over the top of Mount Greylock.

Mount Greylock view west
On the way down the mountain, we took the Overview Trail. I was hoping for several scenic views on the trail, but we were only rewarded with this one scenic vista looking west.

For more views, visit Our World Tuesday.

Lovely scenery which reminds me of the "Massif Central" in France!

Leora...What a nice series of pictures. The tower is really beautiful with it carving and top piece, but I would have to be content looking at it form the ground rather than walking up to the top. Bet the view from the top is awesome. genie
