What a beautiful town. We really enjoyed it! On our way home, we stopped at Mount Sugarloaf State Reservation where we enjoyed butterflies and the view of the Connecticut River and the Pioneer Valley.
We could see UMass from the overlook!
Great Spangled Fritillary
Our next stop was in Holyoke, MA to see the Dinosaur Footprints preserved in sandstone.
We walked to within view of the river and watched Cedar Waxwings hunting insects for a little while along the river's edge.
Donna spotted these tiny moths, which will require some research on my part to ID.
This is where the dinosaur footprints are found (just below Route 5). It is not very impressive, and yet at the same time, it is!
