We consulted the list of waterfalls and decided that Royalston Falls required a visit. The hike down was a little difficult because of all of the leaves and the recent rain, but the falls were an unbelievable surprise. You follow an innocent little brook on a very nice ramble through dense woods, and suddenly a giant gorge opens before you. It was surprising to think that something like this even exists in Massachusetts, and in particular how few people must know about it. There are two other falls nearby that we’re going to go visit as soon as we can. Stay tuned.
This is the best example of Turkey Tail Fungus I think I’ve ever seen. You can really see why it’s called that.
