Hopkinton & Westerly Grills

5.91 miles; hopkinton and westerly, ri i started this hike from the hopkinton side today, because i wasn’t sure the blue trail on the westerly side was open yet. the white-blazed tomaquag trail starts out alongside two large cornfields, and the late corn is up. yeah, fungus shot. couldn’t help myself. it’s such a cool color.

Quick Visit to Black Farm

2 miles; hopkinton, ri i brought some friends who aren’t regular hikers to black farm, because i’m always looking for excuses to visit this place. i didn’t take hardly any pictures today—too busy yakking. but i just really liked the look of these pipsissewa buds, and why yes, that is poison ivy in the foreground. whoops.
