This morning, I hiked the Skyline Trail from the parking lot at Headquarters Path over to Rt 28 and back. I started around 8:30. It was pretty quiet. I even got a few minutes of solitude to look out at Boston from Buck Hill. But by 10, traffic started to pick up. By the time I left, it was getting to be too busy for my taste.

There are a lot of deer flies out; most unusual. I wasn't bitten, though. Aside from that the only other wildlife I noticed was a large toad along the trail. Last week, I saw a couple of small snakes.
