Eastern Summit on the Mohawk Trail

Focus on the telephone pole. Now, look way past it to the background. See cleared area? That is a view that a person would not see from the Eastern Summit. The picture is definitely the WESTERN Summit. (Above the Hairpin Turn.) The cleared area that you see is in Clarksburg. I lived 19 years in C'burg, and went up there many times and took pictures of my house, through my binoculars.

This is a picture taken from the upper parking lot at the Wigwam.That is Suzie Yeuelle's Gremlin in the foreground.It's when Ruth Yeuelle owned the shop. Sometime between 1972-74, as I used to live there at the time.And boy, it was cold waking up in the basement of that house, where I slept!!

I don't recall the name, but, I believe this is the first giftshop when leaving Greenfield, Mass. setting on the left side of the trail. Other shops have different settings.It does set down from the highway and I know of no other having a simmular setting.
