YELLOW AND GREEN AND RED ALLOVER

Nothing is more magical than the yellows, oranges and reds that begin to appear high above us and float down to the ground this time of year. Except of course the Fall Foliage parade that’s theme is “Magic in the Berkshires.” With witchcraft and wizardry atop Mount Greylock (Bascom Lodge has indeed been pronounced the most Hogwarts-like building in the country), and fairies in Adams, this is guaranteed fun for all.
Route starts on Curran Memorial Highway. North Adams MA.
