First note: I didn’t take that picture (obviously. there are leaves in it.) I stole it off the internet. What a bad person am I.
Today I took a ride up to Prospect Hill in Waltham, which is just a few miles from my house and mostly along the bike path that runs along the Charles. But I’ve never been there or even knew about it at all!
First of all, that was possibly the most steep/long climb I’ve ever tried. Well, not actually. But it felt like it! I just went hiking in the White Mountains over the weekend and I’m a fat weenie so it was really, really, really hard and now I’m wicked sore.
But it was totally worth it (and the humiliation that resulted from getting off and walking the last leg.) The view, as you can see, is breathtaking. I forgot my camera, but with no leaves on the trees you could see just about everything and it was phenomenally gorgeous. I’d definitely recommend it as a great place to go riding/walking/jogging. There are even tons of places to go for food nearby, and tons of little fireplaces/grills already set up throughout the park!
