Hiking Trip to Blue Hills this Weekend! [photos]

Last weekend Josh and I took a hiking trip to Blue Hills, which is (luckily) only a half hour drive from Boston. We had hoped to hike 9 miles, but were pressed for time and managed somewhere between 5 and 5.5 instead. We had a great time nonetheless, and are excited to return next weekend! Here are the details I plan to record for every hike going forward:

Weight: 123.5
Location: Blue Hills
Distance: 5-5.5 miles
Time: 2 hrs 30 min

We have been highlighting the trails we’ve trekked on a map, and plan to cover every inch of Blue Hills over time. It’s such fun to chart your course and roam around, scrambling up hills and boulders, and being as silly as you please. Can’t wait for next week’s adventure!
