Camping in Shelburne Falls

Kodi hasn't been doing too much in terms of "Doggy Olympics" this summer... after an uber-busy late spring-early summer, we've taken that last month off from showing and have been working on some heavy duty down-time!

Last weekend we went camping in Shelburne Falls, a lovely little town in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains in Western MA. The weather was the exact opposite of our June trip to the Finger Lakes... bright sunshine with just cool enough temps to make the days pleasant and the nights perfect for a a camp fire before cuddling up in bed.

I wasn't sure I wanted to come home!!!

The water is low, but not terribly low. No drought like in the mid-west, just sort of normal, late summer low. This particular river system has 7 controlled release hydro-electric dams on it. So depending on the time of day, it can look a LOT different. It is used for white water rafting for that reason... Reliable white water.
