West Stockbridge, MA

Yesterday was the first day of a one-week road trip.  I’m heading up to Southern Vermont and New Hampshire. I decided to take it slowly, less driving, more sightseeing. But as usual plans and reality didn’t quite mesh.  What should have been about a 2-1/2-hour drive took a whole lot longer, thanks to two massive traffic jams involving serious accidents.

I know the Berkshires well and headed over to West Stockbridge, a small artsy town. There is a new (to me) sculpture park – Turn Park Art Space. Set on the site of a former quarry, the park combines sculpture and a beautiful natural setting.

Then I visited a favorite gallery, Joel Hotchkiss Mobiles — home to a talented mobile maker.
