Purgatory Chasm

While visiting my life-long friend in Massachusetts, he took me to see Purgatory Chasm near Sutton, MA.  It’s a half-mile long deep ravine filled with car-sized boulders.

While not treacherous, per se, it’s not a casual stroll through the park either.  Constantly climbing over, under or around massive boulders, rarely is there a flat surface to walk on for more than a few feet at a time.

We barely made it passed Lover’s Leap, which is about 1/4 of the way, when we decided to turn back.  We would have forged ahead, but you know, we had the wrong shoes, no water, no compass, no waterproof matches, no flashlight or other survival gear.  Otherwise we would have gutted it out to the end, except for the fact that we’re old and out of shape.

Thought for the Day:  Its rough going through life with your contents looking as if they “settled during shipping”.  Milton Berle
