Mt. Institute aka Berkshire East Ski Resort.

Trails were mostly dry and in good shape. Nicely mowed.

Neat to see all sorts of obstacles set up for the Bone Frog Challenge this coming Saturday - a new, tougher type of Tough Mudder event designed by Navy Seals.

Starting to see some golden foliage as well.
