More Than Just a Hike–Mt. Sugarloaf or Wequamps, Which Means a Place where a Hill Drops Off.

I think amazing views can open the mind in a great way—a metanoia experience—to reflect on how relatively short a period of time European or “modern” culture has been living and working in the Connecticut River Valley: Four hundred years of western civilization, compared to 11,600 years of native land use. This great hike and view rests at the southern end of the Pocumtuck range, and the native mythology describes the northern end of the range as the tail of the buried beaver, and the southern most extreme hill and drop off looking over the river, the head of the great beaver.
