Mt. Tom. Because it's there.

 I can see Mt. Tom from my bedroom window. So I often walk up. One of my favorite routes is up the old ski trail.

This is a nice time of year to see all the wildflowers.

Nice patches of goldenrod color the landscape nicely. Can you hear the cicadas?

It's more of a walk and not really a climb. The old roads make it easy.

Author at the top of the mountain overlooking Easthampton.

The white blaze on the rock indicates I'm on the Metacomet-Monadnock trail.

The winter star will soon shine brightly over Easthampton.

A little swimming hole. Water was a bit stagnate. Frogs liked it, though.

One of the old pools from the water park days. I never went to the water park.

Dilapidated deck from the water park, alpine slide days.

Love the sheer cut rocks of Mt. Tom.

You always meet friendly guys and gals along the trail. This guy flew around me for a while. Nice to have the company.

View of the mountain from my back deck. See you soon!
