Bash Bish Falls, Massachusetts

Massachusetts’ highest waterfall, Bash Bish Falls is located in Mounts Washington State Forest down near the borders of New York and Connecticut. It is actually a double waterfall after being split by a huge boulder and then reflected on lower rocks back again.

There are two trails to the falls, a steep upper trail and a lower trail which is a bit longer but a lot more level.

Down by the Henry Moore

Henry Moore Sculpture, Royal Ontario Museum

“I went down to the Henry Moore
Skated all in the Square
The moon above my shoulder
And the ice was in my hair
Alone but never lonely
That’s how I like to be
If you want to have fun
Like a rock’n roll bum
Don’t think the worst of me”

Murray McLauchlin, singing about Toronto, where he made his first music appearances. The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto has a fabulous collection of the massive sculpture of Henry Moore.

The Sonoran Desert is a North American desert which straddles part of the United States-Mexico border and covers large parts of the U.S. states of Arizona and California, and the Mexican state of Sonora.

It is one of the largest and hottest deserts in North America with an area of 120,000 square miles (311,000 sq. km.).

One of the best places to learn about the Sonora desert is the Arizona State Desert Museum which contains representative plants and animals. Most of these images were taken there.
