To the Top of Mt. Greylock

Is That a Bobcat?

Why, yes it is. Not only is it a bobcat, but it’s lunching down on a recently killed groundhog, which I suspect is why it didn’t slink away and we were able to see it at all. Where did I see this? Well, it was in my backyard in CT, while I was taking a zero. I know it wasn’t on the trail, but it was just too cool not to bring up.

Mount Greylock

Mount Greylock is the highest point in Massachusetts at nearly 3500 ft. It was a long climb up and unfortunately due smoke from the Canadian fires, we weren’t treated to the long distance views that we typically would have. Instead, we had the top of the mountain to ourselves and the first hand view of the following tower.

This is the Mount Greylock Veterans War Memorial Tower. The tower has a long history, including being rebuilt, but it currently does the veterans proud. Please Google it.

A really cool mountain pond and cabin sit just below the peak of Mount Greylock, which you pass on the hike up. Check out this would-be Bob Ross photo.
