Outdoor Spring Activities for Families in the Berkshires

Mud abounds in the Berkshires during the spring months (as it does in a lot of places) and my son would do nothing else but play it it if I let him. Unfortunately for him, I occasionally need some variety. So here are some of the activities we will be enjoying this spring in the Berkshires.
