Ninigret WR

2.9 miles, 3 mph we had torrential rains here yesterday, reminiscent of the 2010 floods, though not quite that bad. i thought maybe ninigret would be dryer than most places i usually hike, and i wasn’t wrong, at least as far as the handicapped-accessible trails were concerned. no such luck, though, on the cross-refuge trail. […]

Westerly and Hopkinton Grills

6.56 miles  2.3 mph well this was quite an eventful hike. i walked over 6-1/2 miles, and got to see the new tomaquag brook bridge, which is, in a word, spectacular. and i saw almost all of the hopkinton grills. and i lost my car keys, which necessitated a 45-minute wait in the cold for […]
