Wachusetts Mountain hike

20 Jul

GMan, JMan and I took a hike up Wachusetts Mountain today. Despite the humidity it was quite cool in the woods and thankfully the wind was blowing.

JMan set the pace and we meandered up. Go here for a trail map.

Cape Cod – Post 7

11 Jul

Up late, breakfast and bike ride.


I found this gem deep in the woods. I have no idea how it got to its current resting spot as the closest road is a mile or so way, but it’s all woods in every direction. 

I parked on Mary Dunn Road (Hyannis MA) just south of route 6. From there I entered the woods and did 5.5 miles mostly on single track and some gravel roads. Apparently it was a failed housing development that was converted to conservation land.


One of the ponds I found. Here’s a link to my route.

Back to house, pack and hit the road. We are at Cape Cod Burgers and Fries in Buzzards Bay (MA). Like five guys without the peanuts, but better and you can write on the walls!

Random wall art.


Jess left this parting note.

All in all is was a wonderful week and thanks W&W for sharing your home and making us feel so very welcome.
