Have you ever worked on a project for a long time and finally see it all coming together? If so, you can imagine our excitement as the beginning of the Massachusetts Walking Tour nears. http://masswalkingtour.org/ I met with the founders, Mark and Raianne, last summer at Booklover’s Gourmet Café in Webster http://www.er3.com/book/ to talk about how this year’s tour might work, how they might use the Easy Walks in Massachusetts book series to help them plan out their route, and how best we could work together. Very soon, they will hit the road, and I’ll join them as often as I can manage.

We’re returning to the Booklover’s Café Saturday, June 10th from 10AM-noon for a kickoff party-plus Easy Walks book signing party just prior to the start of the grand event. Come join us!

But I also wanted to offer a preview of some of the wonderful trails the tour will travel along during this almost two week journey through the Blackstone Valley and Upper Charles River watershed. The trails do not connect, so the hiking musicians will be on local roads for portions of each day, but they will take advantage of local trails to get them off road wherever they can. Here’s a peak of some of the places they will visit:
