eliot tower

Originally uploaded by wereldmuis.

I got up early this morning, skipped breakfast, and went for a hike at Blue Hills Reservation. I went early to avoid the heat and crowds. Good thing, too, since it was already crazy busy, even though I was there before 9.

I decided to do the Skyline trail loop starting at Rt 138, in the western part of the reservation. According to Ranger Pete, the loop is a 3 mile hike. I did it in 2 hours, which makes my pace pretty bad, but it's early in the season.

At least Eliot Tower was pretty empty when I got there, however, and I had the chance to go on up, which I haven't done before. Nice views!
