You are standing on the back of a dead giant man-eating beaver. According to Native American legend. Maybe so. This is the view from Mount Sugarloaf in South Deerfield, Massachusetts. It's only just over 650 feet high, but it's placement on a wide valley floor lends the view a strangely spectacular sense of drama. Especially at peak foliage season.
We're looking south in the above photo; that's Mt. Tom in Holyoke on the horizon. Here below is looking eastward.
