New England Fall Foliage » Foliage Articles » Fall color in Western Mass

It’s not quite that time yet but New England Photography Guild photographer John Burk just wrote an article on Fall foliage in western Mass and you can read his article by clicking here, on his favorite subject, his back yard.

His back yard extends from as high as the top of Mount Greylock and down as low as the Quabbin Reservoir and all over the Berkshires. (Yes he has a really big back yard!) 🙂

Dummerston Covered bridge was originally in Vermont for about a hundred years until it was time for a new one but instead of destroy the old one the state of Massachusetts and the conservation folks at Old Sturbridge village said they would take it

Dummerston Covered bridge AKA. the Taft covered bridge

Now if you arrive after Columbus day weekend you can go to Sturbridge Village. Once there you will find glorious color, and an entire village that dates back to the 1700s. There is a covered bridge (seen above) and a horse drawn carriage ride and a blacksmith’s anvil ringing in the distance (plus other shops). To get here you can travel over I-90 and then head south on I-84 and follow the signs to go to Sturbridge Village. You can go on their website to check prices and events for particular days. You can view some images of that region in my gallery of Massachusetts fall foliage on my Vistaphotography Art and Stock image site.
