Traveling this weekend for a wedding, I spent a couple of days in eastern New York and western Massachusetts. It was a bit early for the peak of fall "leaf peeping" season, but the Berkshires are gorgeous any time of year.
On the last day of the trip, I went for a morning hike with my family. The trailhead is at the Housatonic river, just outside the tiny town of Stockbridge, MA. From there, we trekked to Ice Glen (1.4 miles, 275' elevation).

Laura's Tower trail, adding another 1.5 mile round-trip and 600' elevation (not counting the stairs to the top of the tower).

I suspect a trail running career is not in my future...
Any recommendations for getting ground-in mud out of running shoes?
Do you have any favorite fall hikes or trail runs?
