Shelburne Falls

Mr. Hunter has been concerned to read news of the floods caused by Hurricane Irene, including floods that affected a favorite spot of his: Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, home of the Bridge of Flowers and the glacial potholes.

Mr. Hunter admires the glacial potholes
in quieter times on the Deerfield River.

What the Bridge of Flowers looked like in 2005.

Another view of the Bridge of Flowers, from September 2008.

Mr. Hunter loves the Bridge of Flowers.

New England--and other places affected by Hurricane Irene--
we are thinking of you!
