Skyline Trail section hike

It's warming up in Boston.  We miss being outside.  We hike.  To get exercise. To just "get outside".  To get out of the city, even if for a few hours.  It's what we do.  It's what I hope Parker does.  So Parker and I began our section hike of the Skyline Trail yesterday.  It's a short trail.  Only 9 miles end to end but hell it's a trail to thru-hike so we began it today.

We began our section hike on the west end of Blue Hills Reservation

At the first turnaround.  Charly tired herself out already

Up up up to the top of Blue Hill after crossing 138

Snack break before heading back to the car

Because we only had 1 form of vehicular transportation, we basically had to hike all of today's section twice.  All in all we did about 1.5 miles.  Next time we will be bringing our bike!
