Last week, Husband and I did a daytrip to western Massachusetts. Traveling through Buckland, we flashed unexpectedly on Tolkien. As if the name wasn’t enough, the village of Shelburne Falls has bit of a Hobbity feel:
The gentle, wooded hills plus colorful, low houses seen across the river and the glorious blossoms on The Bridge of Flowers certainly made my Hobbit radar ping, even if the house styles aren’t quite right.
Alas, we didn’t find a Crickhollow nearby.
