January 17, 2021 – Columbia Greenway Rail Trail and Westfield River Walk – Massachusetts

Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Columbia Greenway Rail Trail and Westfield River Walk in Westfield, Massachusetts. The Columbia Greenway Rail Trail is a two plus mile paved path through the town of Westfield that traverses the Great River Bridge over the Little River. The Westfield River Walk is an almost two mile stone-dust path along the Little River which intersects with the Columbia Greenway Rail Trail.

We had a bridge-filled Adventure to the Columbia Greenway Rail Trail and the Westfield River Walk. Our main Adventure fell through today so we found ourselves exploring spontaneously. This Trail and Walk were not too clearly identified in-person, however upon arriving home I did some research in regards to our travels to discover that we had explored these two locations.

We enjoyed walking along the River, across the bridges, and down the paved path. The bridges were the pair of the Great River Bridges and the Westfield River Bridge, all of which had crossings available for pedestrians. There were lovely views down the River. Wilma enjoyed the walk over and under the bridge, and entertained me as she played in puddles of cracking ice. If I had realized that there were particular trails we may just have traversed these entire pathways, however glad to find portions of today’s trails for our Adventure (This blog will not be rated).

Weekly Video/Photo

If you regularly follow my blog, and the weekly/video photo I would recommend skipping on to paragraph three, specific to this week’s video/photo.  I have decided to add a weekly video/photo section to my blog.  This blog will display a video or photo, usually highlighting an Adventure, while I might also sneak in some that are humorous, adorable, or just other fun dog moments.

So if you have followed my blog from the beginning you will know that I adopted Shadow as a puppy, and about a year later adopted Buster as a puppy.  We had many wonderful years together before experiencing the devastating loss of Buster at just seven.  It took a long time for our hearts to heal, but almost a year later we welcomed little Wilma into our world.

Today’s feature is a photograph of Buster and Shadow at Stanley Park, in Westfield Massachusetts.  I love this photo of them standing synchronized in front of the covered bridge!  We were quite impressed by the lovely Stanley Park, and had a wonderful visit.  This photograph brings back lots of great memories of our Adventures with Shadow and Buster.  We sure do miss our Buster!
