      Hey Ben! That is a great question. I think the 3 Bonds are my favorite without a doubt. They are so beautiful with exposed ridge hiking. However they are also so remote so one must earn those views with some mileage. What do you think?

        I am a Western MA resident as well; it is such a beautiful place! Monadnock is a great choice near the border. Most of the time I either go to the the Whites or I take in the outdoor awesomeness in Western MA.

    It is amazing how much the landscape changes in Mass as you go from the urban east to the mountainous west. I want to go on a hiking and fishing vacation this summer that is unique and away from new England. Any suggestions? Also I have a blog on fishing that I run if you ever want to exchange guest posts. Thanks for your time again.
