Berkshire Collects at the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield, MA

Berkshire Collects - Tea Cup CollectionMany of us collect something – art, watches, books, coins – but who collects collections? The Berkshire Museum, that’s who – and they’ve collected together a bunch of local collections in their Berkshire Collects exhibit, running now through May 11th.

As a species, we love to collect and organize, seemingly, and never is the statement “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure” made more obvious than by viewing the grouped results of someone’s long-term collecting passion.

Bash Bish Falls

March 25th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

Bash Bish FallsIf you have never seen Bash Bish Falls, located on the state line of NY and MA in Mt. Washington, you’re missing what is undoubtedly the most spectacular waterfall in Massachusetts.

Really.

Bash Bish Falls name has to be onomatopoeia for the way the runoff and spring-fed waters splash over a series of dramatic gorges before finally tumbling 80 feet down into the crystal clear pools below – and what a sight, well worth the moderate hike from the parking area at Bash Bish Falls State Park.

Bash Bish Falls are gorgeous and entrancing even when there hasn’t been much rain but, with spring coming and its run off and rains, Bash Bish Falls are going to be quite spectacular once more, filling the air and covering all the nearby foliage (and visitors, too) with mist from all that bashing, bishing water.
