Blackstone Gorge on Chronicle WCVB TV

Such fun to share with viewers of the TV magazine show Chronicle (Channel 5 Boston) the wonders of the Blackstone Gorge. I have been visiting the Gorge for over 30 years, in all seasons, and each visit offers a different view of the Blackstone river and the gorge itself.
