As a Mass Art student, I was had the pleasure of visiting Haystack
for 5 days for 4 years. Every summer I keep vowing to take a class
there, but, life gets in the way of life. The classrooms are very
well equipped, but I agree with Charles, take your favorite tools.
The water has a high sodium content, and you cannot drink it. They
have plenty of bottled water. The food is great, and the views are
memorable. I envy you! Take you sketchbook, find a rock on to sit
on by the water, and spend some time remembering how to breathe.
Time has new meaning at Haystack. Soak it all in and enjoy
By the way, the bell tower was built by one of my professors at Mass
Art, George Greenemyer. There is a time capsule buried beneath, but
he has never revealed the contents. I don’t know when it is
supposed to be opened.
