The mountain seems to be Holyoke's favorite dog walking location. Walkers, and their canine companions, were out in force despite the cool temperature on Sunday afternoon. I wasn't properly dressed to trek around Mountain Park, but I stopped by anyhow to check out the pavilion. I was told it had been moved last week.
The ground was so muddy, and the wind cold through my hoodie that I aborted the attempt. Satisfied to get a photo of the scene from afar. And to catch this great shot of the sun setting behind me.
On the way home I stopped by the old Mastex mill. I've wanted to get some photos of the inside since it closed last year. They made airbags for GM cars, and lost a tremendous amount of money when GM went bankrupt. The corporation had been renting the mill, and was making plans to buy it only months before. It's unusual architecture for Holyoke. Originally the die works for the Farr Alpaca Company. Looks like they have been surveying the adjacent lot. let's hope something good is happening here.
