hiking the blue hills

Thanksgiving for Mike and I brought more than just a long weekend of gluttony. It brought home friends who have moved far away. And they had a great idea for catching up that encouraged us to get adventurous, locally.

The Blue Hills Reservation stretches through the towns of Quincy, Dedham, Milton and Randolph, MA just south of Boston. In the Winter it provides a short getaway for skiers, and during the rest of the year, it’s a great place to hike. Mike and I had been meaning to try out the trails for a while, so we were excited when our friends came up with the idea.

We followed the Skyline Trail, which brought is to the very top, where you can see beautiful views of the Boston skyline. It wasn’t too strenuous, but for a group still full from a whole day of eating, it definitely did the trick.
