Bradley Palmer State Park, Topsfield-Ipswich line.
At Marini Farm in Ipswich.
As Easter was one of the first nice days we’ve had this spring, I thought I would head over to one of my favorite stomping grounds — Willowdale State Forest in Ipswich — and have a look at what the winter had wrought.
At first the trail seemed unusually dry (this is mud season, after all). Soon, though, I ran into washed-out paths that forced me to change my route and put in more miles than I’d planned on. There were a few bugs, though nothing like what will be buzzing around in a couple of weeks.
All in all, a great walk, and I was back home before the first quarter of the Celtics-Knicks game had ended.
