The fall foliage season is short and this weekend it will probably be at its peak, so we’re asking Berkshire Family Focus readers: Where is your favorite Berkshire trail, peak or viewing area to catch the fall foliage? Is it atop Mount Greylock or simply sitting on the porch in your backyard? How about the views surrounding some of the region’s lakes? Berkshire Family Focus wants to know. We’ve asked our fans on Facebook and Twitter and now we are asking you? Leave your comment below or visi one of the aforementioned social media sites by clicking on the links attached to them above.
