Autumn Intensity at Quabbin Reservoir by 


On a rainy fall day the sudden appearance of the late-day sun can really make the colors pop! The Quabbin Reservoir located in central Massachusetts was built in the 1930’s to provide clean drinking water for the Boston region. Over 2500 people in the towns of Dana, Enfield, Greenwich, Prescott, and parts of seven other towns, were forced to give up their homes in the Swift River Valley to make this project possible. Today, Quabbin is recognized as one of the largest drinking-water reservoirs in the world, a remarkable feat of engineering, an “accidental wilderness” that is home to an impressive variety of wildlife, and a place that brings bittersweet memories to many who once lived there.
