Ride around the Berkshires - November 24, 2001

These pictures were taken with my Olympus C2100-UZ digital camera in the Berkshires of Massachusetts and Litchfield County, Connecticut, on November 24, 2001. With a lot of clouds and fog and drizzle, the scenery wasn't very good, so I mostly took pictures of the roads. All images are 24-bit JPEGs and should be viewed on a 24-bit display. Quality is likely to be very poor when viewed on an 8-bit display. Most images are shown at a resolution of 640x480, but are available in 800x600 and full 1600x1200 sizes by clicking on the links after the captions.

Massachusetts 8 South and Massachusetts 9 East, between Pittsfield and Dalton. [800x600][1600x1200]

Massachusetts 8 (US 8?!) South, near Dalton. Someone should tell them that US 8 barely reaches Michigan at its easternmost point. [800x600][1600x1200]

Massachusetts 8's junction with US 20 in Becket. [800x600][1600x1200]

More. [800x600][1600x1200]

Approaching the underpass of the Mass Pike (I-90) on Massachusetts 8 South and US 20 West in Becket. [800x600][1600x1200]

Massachusetts 8 South splits off from US 20 West, also in Becket. [800x600][1600x1200]

They say the road gets narrow with sharp curves, but it really wasn't bad. [800x600][1600x1200]

Crossing Massachusetts 23 in Otis, on Massachusetts 8 South. [800x600][1600x1200]

The junction with Massachusetts 57 in New Boston, on Massachusetts 8 South. [800x600][1600x1200]

At a turnoff on Massachusetts 8, just north of the Connecticut border. [800x600][1600x1200]

The Colebrook River lake is down there behind the trees, but it seems to be almost empty. [800x600][1600x1200]

It almost has the look of a braided river up in Alaska - but it's just because there's a dam a few miles down but it's not holding back much water right now. [800x600][1600x1200]

Entering Connecticut on Massachusetts 8. [800x600][1600x1200]

And now it's Connecticut 8. [800x600][1600x1200]

And the junction with US 7 North. [800x600][1600x1200]

Blurred "Welcome to Massachusetts" on US 7 North. [800x600][1600x1200]
