Camp Yawgoog/North Road

★★★★½  5.57 miles

long hiatus, between rain and gardening chores and family obligations! i really missed being in the woods, and wouldn’t you know, while i was gone, everything’s leafed out and the blackflies arrived (so aside from that, mrs. lincoln, how did you like the play?). i did this hike from my hairdresser’s house, at his recommendation, and it was a good ‘un. i went through camp yawgoog, around yawgoog and wincheck ponds and back. there’s one fantastic stretch where you’re walking through giant rhododendrons. they must be 25-30 feet tall. can’t wait till they’re in bloom. lotta road-walking, though; maybe half. so, 50:50 hikey:walkey, with a teeny bit of climby.
