Peter is taking the GREs today (please wish him luck) in an industrial park in West Springfield, MA and Cris and I have a few hours to fill.  Friends had told us about the Ashley Reservoir which is nearby so we decided on a walk.  This place is amazing.  Less than 5 minutes off the 91 and so peaceful.

The fact that this place is so close to the Holyoke Mall and a major highway makes it even more surprising.

What is especially cool is the ability to walk across these causeways and feel like you are in the middle of a lake.  Almost like walking on water!

Next time any of you are driving through Western Mass, take Exit 15 off the 91 and you are there.  Sadly, no doggies though.
