Francis Carter Preserve

3.84 miles   ★★★★ decided to rewalk this for a couple of reasons. first, to look for my friend’s cellphone that she lost when we were out wednesday, and second, because i just like it. it got very hot (high 80’s) while i was out, and i had to douse my head with water. otherwise […]

Escoheag & Mt. Tom Trails

3.79 miles  ★★★★ as i told a fellow hiking blogger (hogger? bliker?) recently, i love maps and i love to plan hikes by looking at maps. but i really have to learn to pay a little more attention to terrain lines. i hiked this stretch of the escoheag trail in march, but i plum forgot […]
