Mount Greylock


The Bascom Lodge at Mount Greylock

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at the Bascom Lodge at Mt. Greylock for a belated 16th anniversary celebration. Greylock was hosting a Native American celebration that day, so we were able to wander through a teepee and browse some Native American goods.

We checked the lodge register as we awaited our dinner reservation and noted a through hiker had just signed in. We located "38" outside at a picnic table and had a nice talk with him about his hike. He left Springer Mountain on February 28 and was hiking with a woman whose parents were going to meet them in New Hampshire so they could slackpack. He was using the same Osprey pack and Black Diamond poles Mike has and really loved them.
