the curious case of Becket Quarry

The video and pictures shown on this post were taken on the trails of Becket Quarry in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

the curious case of Becket Quarry, where did everyone go?

The trip starts on the trails leading to the Electrical Generator Shed(post #7) followed by Stiff Arm Derrick Site(post #8) before wandering for a while on Vista trail & Old Motion loop.

Afterwards, you will see Post #10(Motion),the hill leading to Post #12(Switch & portable compressor), posts # 13 & 14(Stiff Arm Derrick site) which overlook the quarry rim/pit. The quarry crane has been restored and may be seen against the blue skies. The camera then heads to Post #9(Railgrade to Motion) passing through the shed. Post #5 follows(two trucks even though one truck only appears on the video). The camera then pauses at Post #6(Guy Derrick Site).

Becket quarry was operational between 1860 & 1960 & was known as the Chester-Hudson Quarry. The interwebs says it had an essential role in building the town of Becket and many monuments in the country. The quarry was abandoned & the equipment left intact as if the workers went on a lunch break & never made it back afterwards.

Fall finale…Everything must go!

The following gallery was taken in Old Saybrook and Essex, Connecticut mostly in places I have not been to before.

It always captivates me when the sun rises after a long dark rainy night and reveals the beauty of our world.

Here is to another captivating moment wondering around…



Unlike humans, trees choose to go naked as the weather gets cooler revealing colors not seen in any other season. For autumn is filled with vivid colors combined with withering life prepared to face the harsh face of winter.

This set was captured on October 25th 2009 in and around Mohonk mountain in New Paltz, NY. The castle known as Mohonk house has been converted to a seven story hotel with SPAs and restaurants to accommodate visitors. You’d see the hiking paths starting at the parking lot, passing by the Victorian gardens all the way to the lake and Skytop. From the tower, you could see Shawangunk Mountain Ridge in the best color combination ever.
