A gray and wet day.
Yesterday, however, was gorgeous. Clear blue sky, bright sun, 55 degrees, low humidity, local trees beginning to turn. We went hiking with the dogs in Middlesex Fells Reservation, about 2,600 acres of woodland, ponds, hills, and fields a few miles north of Boston. In 2.5 hours on the Rock Circuit Trail, in the midst of a population of 2 million, we saw four people. Briefly. It’s not the New England mountains but if you want to get into the woods, it’s hard to beat.
