A Birthday in the Berkshires
|Location||Mt. Greylock, The Berkshires, between Adams and Williamstown, Massachusetts|
|Duration||Two days/one night|
|Highlights||Great food, great bed, great friends, birthday cake.|
We leave the valley floor in sunlight; a dozen friends and I heading to the top of Mt. Greylock, at 3,491 feet, the tallest peak in Massachusetts. It’s my birthday, and we will celebrate with dinner at the newly opened Bascom Lodge restaurant, followed by a “sleepover” in the lodge’s bunkroom, its narrow double-decker beds reminiscent of childhood summer camp.
