Mount Washington State Forest - Another instance of good luck, we hiked Alander Mountain in a break in the rain. It was Proactive's first time visiting the Taconics for a social hike and the first time hiking in Massachusetts for most of us. The forests here were decidedly different from those in other regions and it was amazing to explore an entirely new area! After hiking back from Alander Mountain, we drove over to Bash Bish Falls for a quick run down to the water. Overall, it was an excellent introduction to the Taconics and left us with the desire to plan another trip to the region soon!
