Day Fifteen Photos

These guys were hanging out in my hotel parking lot this morning.

Eastern NY/Western MA is very reminiscent of the western part of the country, with the trees and the mountains and the twisting roads. It was a great change of pace from the urban environs that dominate from Chicago eastward.

Been a while since my last panoramic. So here!

This and the next two photos were taken on my side trip up to Vermont. Beautiful country!

The Dr. Seuss Memorial Sculpture Garden in Springfield, MA.

More from the Sculpture Garden.

Getting close to Boston...

...and here it is! This shows you the fog I was talking about. Tops of the tallest buildings could not be seen.

And this is the site of the end of Route 2o. There used to be a sign showing "Route 20 END", but it looks as if it was removed during the re-construction of the intersection in the last year.

This shot of downtown was taken from the Massachusetts Ave bridge heading over to Harvard.

  1. debbie and i just walked across this bridge two weeks ago, from the cambridge side back into boston! it was a beautiful afternoon, lots of sailboats on the river,etc. we never did drive into boston-- we left the car at the quincy train station and paid 5 bucks a day to park instead of the 40 plus they charged at the hyatt downtown! we might be rubes, but we were smart rubes! (thank god they invented suitcases with wheels or this would not have been possible!)
    congrats on conquering route 20! have fun, be safe, and we'll see you on wednesday.
    love, mom
