Phantom Bog/Shumunkanuc Hill

★★★★½  5.7 miles

nicely varied hike through another part of the burlingame wildlife management area. lots of open woods roads and lanes, a little bit climby, a little bit boggy. nice spot. i saw a live deer and a dead one, and a gorgeous swath of hay-scented fern that smelled amazing where the sun warmed it.
