Today we decided to try out a new trail about 30 minutes from Quincy in Weymouth. The trail is part of the Trustees of Reservations. There are several entrances to this land, but we chose the Turkey Hill entrance due to its proximity to route 3A. We parked in the small dirt lot that was only occupied by three other cars. Erin decided to play around with the camera while I was getting the GPS and my bag ready which led to a series of random shots finishing with me ever so concentrated on configuring the my iPhone GPS to get a good signal. As we entered the trail there we were greated by two older (60s) gentlemen leaving the trail in a very disshevled way. Neither looked as though they had been prepared to end up in the woods when they left their house that day, but somehow it seems that was what their day turned into. One of the men tripped over a succession of three differnt rocks as they made their way past us towards their car and all I could think was that whatever their purpose had been for being in the woods, I was pretty sure that mine was not the same.
