This summer and fall has been a time of getting out to do the field work for my upcoming book More Easy Walks in Massachusetts. (ed. Now available!) Along the way, I’ve learned of even more trails I will eventually add to my original, first trails book, Easy Walks in Massachusetts. Here’s a peak at one of the trails that “belong” with the original book. It’s located in Grafton, MA, which I’m learning about with the help of my hiking buddy, Al Sanborn. As you’ll see, winter is setting in here in New England, the leaves have fallen, and ponds are freezing over. Yet there is still a charming beauty in these hidden-away places.
The beaver lodge is intriguing since its inhabitant doesn’t seem to have used much sense, chewing on the tree that overhangs his lodge! I expect one day there will be a crash and the lodge will no longer be the comfy refuge that it’s been.
