Peace Pagoda

It's been some years since I visited the Peace Pagoda in Leverett but last night before sundown I suddenly had the thought that I should go up there. This is a most unusual place, one of six such structures in the US. Located on a small mountaintop, it is a massive solid concrete structure built by a Japanese Buddhist group dedicated to world peace and it is meant to be a focus of contemplation. The setting is quite amazing with a beautiful Japanese water garden and lovely views to the south.
