Whipple Hill

I just learned about Whipple Hill a few months ago and took advantage of a clear day last weekend to go exploring. The park is in Lexington and is a lovely trail system with rocky outcrops and some other hidden treasures.

 A well-known part of the reserve is the abandoned 1952 Packard upside down in the woods. It's just there on the trail and so neat to see all the bits all rusted out, just sitting there. Not far from there is a set of stairs to nowhere too. I laughed since it reminded me of 2020...solid start then collapse...
 I love hikes that have rocky trails - it's my favorite type of hike to get to climb over a mix of terrain. Eventually, on this trail I ended up at the highest point in Lexington and then made my way back down.
A super easy and exciting trail and beautiful place to get away for a bit!

Quincy Quarry Reservation

Oh, you treat it like old graffiti
Oh, oh yeah

Too busy like old graffiti
Oh, oh


{Bibio -- Old Graffiti}

Quincy Quarry has been on my to-go see list for ages and I finally made it down 93 to check it out. It's an old stone quarry turned park where rock climbers and graffiti artists alike can go crazy tagging and climbing. 

It was a pretty neat site to see. You enter in from the bottom of the quarry and can take in all the tags. There are ways to get to the tops of some rock faces, either by climbing or paths (I chose the latter).

It was a bit busier than I liked but I was able to stay away from others, snap a few pictures, and get back to my car! Glad I finally ticked this place off the list!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 21

The Good:
Another book down. This was a bunch of short essays, poems, and writings about Yiddish in America.

The Random:
This little gnome is sitting against a little parking hut around the corner from my place. Because why not...

The Fun:
I can't take credit for the idea - but we played Guess the Book Title Using Emojis and it was a HIT. I now have nursery rhymes and more book titles ready to go!
