To Purgatory and Back | Purgatory Chasm State Reservation, Sutton, MA.

Hi, I hope you’re all well!

Over the summer I had a chance to visit Purgatory, Purgatory Chasm State Reservation that is. ;-) There are many State and Federal parks throughout Massachusetts as well as the United States with varying, beautiful, landscapes and environments. I took my motorcycle this trip so I didn’t hike the chasm.

There’s more information about the Chasm and it’s legends below the images, if you’re interested.

take care or yourselves

Hi All

This is a republish of a post from a few years back but you might enjoy it. Montreal is a wonderful place to visit. I prefer the spring or summer but you hardy folks ….

take care


Recently I traveled from Boston to Montreal for a few days. It’s about a five hour drive by car. I’ve been there a few times now and I’ve always enjoyed myself. The people are friendly, the food is great and there’s much to do.  It reminds me of Paris but smaller and a bit more modern. I’m not an expert on either place though.

It was raining over much of the trip, which is very unusual but I still managed to get some lovely images. I also learned something very valuable concerning picture taking in the rain. Unless you have a pro water-sealed camera that you wish to lug around in the rain, carry a small quality camera that you can stick in a coat pocket.

All these images have been minimally processed and all sized down. lb
Bonjour Montreal!
