With the sun already low in the sky, I dove into my shiny black Mustang GT and hit the winding back roads of Berkshire County. With the bright orange evening sun at my back, I had no specific destination in mind. 

However, in about 20 minutes, I found myself parked at the opening of Herbert Cross Road leading down to the breath-taking Keystone Arch Bridge trail. The trail snakes around the beautiful Westfield River and is home to keystone arch bridges built throughout the 1830s as well as dozens of beautiful waterfalls.

As it was already getting quite dark by the time I arrived, I didn’t stray too far from the first bridge, but managed to capture the beautiful cascades nearby. I was even treated to watching a long freight train pass over the old double arch bridge.

It was a beautiful view in the evening and only provided more incentive to return again.
