    This was the most beautiful hike. And strenuous - legit think I almost killed my dog on this hike and now I have to retire her from hiking. She'll live the sheltered life of a geriatric housedog from now on

      Woooow Mel, absolutely stunning. Truly beautiful. Looks like you have an excellent camera too!

    At least the air was clearer today between Windsor, CT and Springfield, MA.

    Do you travel to nearby cities just for fun? Seems like you are often on the go but stick pretty close by.

    Springfield isn't the nicest city. But you take nice photos

      Springfield, MA is only 36 rail miles from Berlin, CT. The city is actually larger than Hartford (153,000 to a bit over 140,000), but greater Hartford is larger than they are. A few miles north is Mount Tom and Holyoke.

      Manhattan is day trip distance, but haven't been there since February 24th (birthday).

      I used to live not too far from you, as I think you know. Do you just visit for fun?

        Well, having their casino downtown helps. It's only 1.5 blocks from the MassMutual Center. Sadly, much of it resembles Hartford to the south, such with roaming gangs of teens on bikes and ATVs, racing up and down Main or State Street. In front of the cops, too.

        Rhode Island is close, but haven't been there in two years.

        At least I got to Maine this year! πŸ™‚β€οΈ

        Wish I could go to Philadelphia (last was 2017). Vermont is close but not there lately either. Never been to Canada, despite living in Maine twice. πŸ˜‘

        The one place I want to visit in NY state again? The Baseball HOF. Last there in 1996 and absolutely loved it! 😁⚾

          I doubt I would dig these often seemingly very random pics if they were from my own city or even country lol :P But I somehow love the random shots of a regular building or street from another country..

            Oh how I hope I can cross this bridge again! I-95 at the NH/ME border. Maine is the top/left side.

                Reminds me of my daughter when her hair gets long. Same-ish hat too.
                Only cuts it once a year.

              this is one of my favorite things about taking the boat down the coastline here. a good majority of the shore is cliffs, so from land you really can't see what's along the shore. there's some really cool cottages right along the lake that you would never know exist just from driving along the lakefront roads. and, there's a bunch of cottages that have been killed by erosion. just in the immediate vicinity of the two in this picture, there's another one just to the left that is still semi-standing while dangling down the hillside, but one wall is hanging completely open and you can still see the furniture sitting inside, another that is part of a series of cottages that looks like it was paradise back in the 50s, but now they're all dilapidated and one in particular is about one good storm from looking like the one in the picture, plus a couple more piles of rubble.

              it's also interesting to look at all the sets of stairs down the cliff. when people put up metal staircases, they tend to last for quite some time. but for whatever reason (i assume because it's cheaper and people here don't really have money), everyone puts up these wooden stairs that end up lasting half a summer and then become something straight out of a horror movie.

                It's crazy that erosion seemed like a non-issue when they build this cottage-poor planning? or were they really unable to know?

              Youfreeme (this started as a comment to your comment, but it's way over the character limit by now).

              i'm really not sure, probably a combination. i think there were a lot of poorly thought out cottages, plus less know-how. and, the lake levels have risen a lot in recent years, which increases the erosion. there's a couple parks in the area that have had to permanently close because so much of the land has fallen into the lake that it was deemed dangerous to even be near there. and a majority of the people who own homes on the top of the cliff have been spending a lot of money lately building walls or throwing rocks onto the bottom of the cliff to keep their houses from having a similar fate.

              but i think this one and some of the others went down the hill even before the recent surge in water level. from my understanding, 40 years ago there was a beach there that would have gone pretty much out to where the picture was taken from. so maybe there has been a slow change in the water level, and the last few years it was just more sudden and noticeable? at work, we lifeguard at a public beach about 20 minutes away, and at that beach you can basically go about 10 yards into the water before it is over your head. just the other day, someone brought out pictures of the beach from about 100 years ago (i'm assuming that age based on the cars in the background), and there were people probably 50 yards out standing waist deep in the water. i'm not sure what caused the changes, but i imagine those changes were not foreseen when people built their houses way back when.
