Riding Out through Western Massachusetts

Out in the woods in Western Mass - Somewhere South of Hartford
 I tried my best to find a scenic route from New York City to Boston, but not only did I forget my winter gloves in 50 degree weather, I didn't realize that much of Connecticut and Eastern Massachusetts are a rather boring drive. I started up 684 to Danbury, then up 202 to New Milford to Nepaug State Forest.

From there I took route 10 to Chicopee, and then had lunch in a delightful Polish neighborhood in Worcester at Tom's International Deli (actually quite good).  From there I tried to find more scenic routes into Cambridge, MA, but was unsuccessful, and I ended up just taking Mass pike (90) most of the way there.
