For those interested in keeping it local on Sunday, consider joining us for a jaunt in Middlesex Fells, just north of the city. To keep it extra fluffy, there might even be snow, and we will both be bringing our dogs, Yuki "scratches please" Callahan and Kiwi "fetch please" Salemi.

Where and when

Meet at Sheepfold parking lot at a reasonable time TBD Sunday morning. Plan for a full morning into early afternoon at the Fells.

What

The plan is to do a 5-6 mile hike that follows some combination of the Reservoir and Skyline trails around the reservoirs.

Is this for me?

Yes, as long as you like being outside and don't mind hanging around with a couple of frisky doges.

Notes

  • There is potential rain in the forecast that we will be keeping an eye on. Keep your fingers crossed it holds off until the afternoon.
  • If there is snow on the ground, waterproof boots are a must.
  • There will be a virtual pre-trip meeting Thursday evening, details to be sent out by email after the lottery.
