Shelburne Falls...A day trip

Surrounded by hills situated in Franklin County in MA, Shelburne falls is not just an ordinary town in New England. Brimming with a historic trolley bridge built in 1908, but turn into this unique place of flowers bridge in 1929. The history traces back in time to Glacier potholes formed 14000 years back is not just interesting to see but to feel this archeological gem. The old historic buildings, quaint shops, bakeries to book shops, art galleries to antiques, a day trip is definitely due. Wonderful if you visit this area without the restriction of any season, spring with blooms, summer with rain, or fall with crisp autumn vivid leaves in each season. 

Bridges of flowers connect the town of Shelburne and Buckland. Walking on the bridges of flowers is a blissful experience. Walk amidst flowers and trees overlooking the Deerfield River and mountains is something that everyone can enjoy. 

Glacier potholes are located a few feet from the bridges of flower, downstream from the Shelburne Falls. Deerfield River continues to cut through its gneiss bedrock. Nature's wonderful creation continues till today as one archeological treasure.
