Mt. Tom Hiking

Mt. Tom is located in Holyoke, MA with 2,082 acre’s of land and hiking trails.  There is also a small lake that can be used for fishing, canoeing, and ice skating.  The highest point of Mt. Tom is just a little over 1200′. Unfortunately, the highest part of Mt. Tom has multiple cell phone towers located on it.  It’s a 4 mile hike on the Metacomet-Monadnock trail to get to the top and back.  The only good part of the multiple towers is that I had full service on my iPhone!! Amazing! Can’t remember the last time I had that.  Anyway, although it’s a small and relatively short hike to the top, it was still a lot of fun and still had some good views of the CT Valley and the Berkshire’s.  These are also my first batch of pictures with my new TS2 Camera.
