Pleasant Valley Wlidlife Sanctuary, Lenox

It was a cold day, but great to be outdoors as always!
Tuesday we walked up Lenox Mountain from Mass Audubon's Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary in Lenox. We took the Overbrook Trail and returned the same way and visited Pike's Pond, one of several beaver ponds at the sanctuary.
At the summit is a view of Richmond Pond with the Taconic ridge in the background.
The old fire tower has been repurposed
as a communications tower.
We enjoyed the boardwalk at Pike's Pond. It was warmer
by the time we returned to the pond.
We are fortunate in the Berkshires to have so many generous benefactors
who have preserved, and given us access to, our wonderful natural spaces.
Thank you!
