Saturday morning we headed to the western part of Massachusetts.  I’ve been through there plenty of times, but have never really spent any time out there.

Our destination was Mount Greylock, the highest point in the state, and the fictional site of Ilvermorny.

Despite worrisome forecasts about the hurricane Hermine heading our way, it was a gorgeous sunny late summer day.

There is all manner of hiking trails in the park, including the Appalachian Trail, but you can drive all the way to the top, so that’s what we did.




(Hiking at least a segment of the Appalachian Trail is on my bucket list, but alas, another time)


We spent the night at a motel nearby where the boys were able to have what is probably their last outdoor swim of the summer, and then headed home on Sunday.
