Climbing Over Rocky Mountain - Wordless Wednesday
(Original Image and Text, Copyright (c) 2012 Cynthia Shenette) Gilbert and Sullivan reference aside, I have no idea where this photograph was taken. My guess is that it was probably taken somewhere accessible via a trolley line from Worcester, Massachusetts. I'm not sure who all the ladies in the photograph are, but I believe the woman in the white dress to the far left is my great-aunt, Helen Bulak. My grandmother, Antonina (Bulak) Szerejko, was such a nervous person I can't imagine she was part of the group. Maybe she was the one taking the photo from a safe spot across the way. The lady sitting looks as if she is about ready to slip off the cliff into the crevice below...
Update 4/25/12, 10:16 a.m.: I discovered the location of the photo! The photograph was taken at Purgatory Chasm in Middletown, RI! I initially ruled out Purgatory Chasm in Massachusetts because the photo looked as if it was taken near the ocean, but I decided to search on Purgatory Chasm anyway. I didn't realize there was a place with the same name near Newport, RI! This is a great discovery, because I have other photos that may have been taken near the same spot!
