This is also known at the glacial pots. Very near the Bridge of flowers. Don't miss this town on a good weather day. Nice walk. Good for available and quaint shops. Friendly people.

Had a great afternoon diving into the fresh (cold!) Deerfield River. Great spot for enjoying the view, chatting with "locals" and having a classic Americana afternoon!
