A Visit With Sara, Pot Holes and Flower Bridges

    I made it up to Massachusetts from Chattanooga in just a couple of days and stopped off for a visit with my Daughter.  She is in school and working as a property manager in Greenfield.  This was my first visit to Massachusetts and Sara showed me the sites.  We also took in all her favorite restaurants in the area.  One on our trips was to a little burg just next to Greenfield where there is a flower bridge and a waterfall.  The bridge was a retired trolley bridge that is now just for pedestrians.  It is spruced up with flowers and is famous locally.  We got our picture taken on the flower bridge.  Since it is only late April, there were not many flowers.  It was still a lot of fun and very interesting.   The area is also known for pot holes.  Not the ones in streets.  
Apparently these are a geological wonder.  They were formed during the ice age when glacier runoff caused eddies that scoured the granite with other rocks to form the pot holes.  There is a particular pot hole that is the world largest at 39 feet across.  Sorry, didn't get a picture of that one.  
     Sara promised to come visit me in Maine sometime over the summer and we said our goodbyes.
