I am still planning on leading a trip to the Quabbin on Oct 16th.
A couple of questions first:

1.) How early does everyone want to meet?
2.) What route will most of you be getting to this part of the state - I90, Rte 2, I91?

I will make a trip up there before the 16th to get the exact hours of the Visitors Center. If you fall in love with the Quabbin, you may want to buy a map from them. A map will give you info on access roads and prohibited areas.

We can either do some photography first and stop by the Visitors Center afterward; or stop at the VC first and photograph second. I prefer to some picture taking first, but that's me.
Looking forward to meeting everyone.
