When it’s this beautiful, what’s a few sleepness nights back in the dorm? Well, besides a few unpleasant Eerde flashbacks, it was a lot of fun to be reunited with about 16 other of my classmates and faculty members and see the transformation that Berkshire School has undergone in the past 10 years. I enjoyed showing Graeme around the campus—although he doubted my sense of direction after I seemed confused by the new driveways and buildings. Yes, I really did attend here!
The alumni group did a fantastic job hosting the reunion. And what kind of a weekend in the Berkshires goes without pancakes and some of the school’s house brand maple syrup. Had I not faced luggage restrictions, I would’ve brought back several jugs of the delicacy. Following the breakfast, we toured around some of the new and renovated buildings. And I must say that I have not done much photo retouching—it is really that green! We worked off our breakfast with a light hike up through some of the trails behind the school buildings.
One faculty member leads us on a walk through the trails that follow the mountains that overshadow the campus. We took the route that led us to the upper pool & water falls and back down by the Thoreau House.
