Walking around the Brooks Estate

I took an easy two-and-a-half-mile walk through the Brooks Estate on Saturday, which was officially Day One of my COVID quarantine. I felt fine and kept my distance from the few people I encountered. Here is some background on the property, which, sadly, is in pretty rough shape. Click on any of the images for a larger view.

Loser Redcoats lose

I took a long bike ride this afternoon and ran into some British soldiers in Lexington. I’m happy to say that they lost.

Sailing on the Mystic Lakes

A brown day in the Fells

I took my first hike in the Middlesex Fells since last December. It was a beautiful day, but the trails were much drier than I expected. That doesn’t bode well unless we have an exceptionally wet April. No signs of greenery yet. No patches of snow, either, although there was a little bit of slushy ice on one of the smaller ponds.

I hear that train a-comin’

A snowy run along the Minuteman

A cold 5-mile run along the Minuteman this afternoon from Arlington Heights to Lexington Center and back. As always, they did a great job of clearing the path. It was a little slippery, but that couldn’t be helped.
