Today’s Meanderings March 1, 2008

Had to do some laundry today, which meant a protracted trip to nearby Shelburne Falls, home of the infamous Wash ‘N’ Wire laundromat and the at-least-as-famous “Pot-holes,” carved into the bed of the Deerfield River beneath the present day Shelburne Falls Dam.


This is a Four-Season-Gorgeous spot, with nuances worth exploring every day of the year.

Today I found that the high, clear waters of winter had over-run some of the granitic gneiss of the river bed with a layer of color and intensity which made my heart pound.



Not a half-bad way to spend a couple of hours while one’s clothes get clean.

I also took a ride through nearby Ashfield, a pastoral mix of wooded hills and farmlands:



‘Twas a productive session of laundro-tography, if I do say so myself.

First, let it be said: LOVE the Wash N Wire!

I knew it would be a great pictorial day out West, and also that I couldn’t be there to play and collaborate.

Fresh clean snow, bracing air, icy water flowing over time and water carved bedrock. The remains of fall foliage reminding us of what is soon to come. A clean mental palate. Rejuvenation.

I’m sorry only for myself, and am (not so) secretly jealous of the images you captured. Beautiful, again.

Maybe next week.

“Gneissly” – precisely! 😆

And Miz Lu, let’s count on a meet-up, if you’re not too busy prepping for your Western Adventure!
