The Berkshires are gorgeous, especially in Fall. Although I was past peak colours, I still enjoyed hiking on the Appalachain Trail, through the fog and rain. I visited The Mount, Edith Wharton's estate, which was delightful -- loved the gardens. Had lots of wonderful lunches and delicious dinners.
Stopped at Walden Pond on the way back to Boston -- so crowded along the trail, it was hard to imagine being there to get away from society.
