Wifey is away in Utah and Nevada doing lots of hiking. They had to cancel the Grand Canyon Hike because of the flooding. All the talk about that put a bug into my head and being on vacation at home seemed like a good time to do one myself.
When we arrived at the Blue Hills Reservation the first noticeable thing was that Logan Airport was bringing in the planes right over the hills for final approach. As we climbed we got closer and closer to the aircraft and were sure the pilots and any passengers looking our way could see us waiving our arms in greeting.
Plane on final approach to Boston
The hike can get difficult at times but the views of Boston and the surrounding area is well worth the work.
Our final goal Chickatawbut Hill
Very Steep Downhill
We estimated that we did around 8 miles and hiked for 5 hours. We both felt pretty good till the last forty minutes. We had used up all of our water and still had forty minutes of moderate hiking to do. Not a big deal but the water that was stored in the car sure hit the spot when we finally got to it.
Awww, you leaving?
