Hello, Welcome! In the new decade, I'm committed to being...how shall we say...hospitable? hehe. Not an easy task for a sphinx. ;-)
Picture for one Moment and Blogging 'Round the Globe are my own little titles to head-up things I post, and not to be confused with the massive appeal of SkyWatch, which is truly global. Go take a look and hang on to your berets because you are in for a whirlwind tour of international skies!
The photo below is a result of a solo photo excursion I took last Sunday - a drive, with several stops. My timing was good for a bit of a sunset. Nothing dramatic in terms of a sunset, but when you add Mount Sugarloaf, it's a pretty impressive view.
I touched the photo up a bit but only to see if I could capture it a bit more as I recall seeing it. Or maybe it was just my rose-colored glasses. ;-)

This is South Sugarloaf (The original Native American name for the mountain is Wequamps (or Wequomps)
Here is a bit of information about Mt. Sugarload Reservation:
Mt. Sugarloaf offers a commanding view of the Connecticut River, the Pioneer Valley, and the Pelham and Berkshire Hills. Consisting of two peaks, North and South Sugarloaf, the Reservation offers picnicking, scenic viewing and hiking. An auto road winds to the summit, making South Sugarloaf Mountain accessible by private automobiles. Available on the summit is a pavilion for scenic viewing and picnicking.
Mt. Sugarloaf, composed of a prominent sandstone rock called Sugarloaf Arkose, is a fine example of the Connecticut Valley's geological history. From its summit can be seen some of the best scenic views of the broad agricultural landscape of the Connecticut River Valley. More here.
And a song for you, too. A much listened-to piece of angst from my youth. If you've lived a little, you know how that goes, right? ;-)
