A Feeling of Fall at Houghton’s Pond

Houghton's Pond

Last Sunday, a friend and I took what now seems to be our annual hike at Houghton’s Pond. The pond probably looks larger than it is. We walked around it twice, at a leisurely pace, stopping along the way to talk and take pictures. It took us about an hour and a half to walk a little more than two miles.

The picture that I posted on Monday for the weekly quote was taken that day as well. It was nice to catch up, get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors. The day was hot, humid and in the upper 80s.  A real treat for this time of year!

But the red, yellow and orange trees betrayed the real season. The fall colors are bright right now and seemed to happen in just a few days. If you’re looking to visit Massachusetts to do some leaf peeping, Houghton’s Pond is a wonderful place!

Enjoy the view!
