Ward Reservation: #hike3 of the #52hikechallenge 2018

It never fails; I get back from an epic hiking/exploring adventure and I try to get back to that feeling while also assuaging my dog-mom guilt for leaving Sadie at home. Inevitably, we head to one of my favorite Boston-area hikes, Ward Reservation in Andover, MA. It’s managed by the Trustees of the Reservation, and one of the few places I can let Sadie run off leash.

Just under a year ago, when I came back from a grand Utah/Arizona adventure during which I’d rolled my ankle, I came out to Ward with Sadie and within moments, rolled my ankle yet again. 3 miles of hurting later, we’d finished and Sadie was happy. Me, not so much.

This time, I made it through 4 miles without a rolled ankle, and so Sadie and were both happy. I didn’t take any photos, but I did get this little video. This is from Elephant Rock, about 2 miles into the reservation. You may not be able to see it, but there’s a nice view of the Boston skyline from this spot.

 

If you live in the Boston area, I recommend a visit to Ward Reservation. You’ll have to pay the $5 parking fee, but I’ve found it’s worth it.
