This is a view of Boston as seen from Wampatuck Hill, this afternoon.

I meandered all over the eastern section of Blue Hills Reservation for 4 solid hours today. I was carrying my backpack for practice. To start, the pack weighed about 20 lbs, and I drank about 2 liters of water along the way. I don't know what sort of pace I was making, since I didn't track my mileage.

I mostly stuck to the flat bits, but I did a few short climbs, like the one up Wampatuck to get to this view. It was a great day for hiking, breezy and dry. The mosquitoes are still being very restrained.

I should sleep well tonight!
