Oh, the things you discover when you take the time to explore.

A couple of weekends ago, I wanted to take a little adventure. I thought about taking a walk along the Charles Esplanade to take pictures of fall foliage. As the morning went on, I realized I didn't want to go to the Esplanade as much. I decided to Google parks in a close vicinity to me. I found that there were two parks close enough for me to get to without having to spend a lot of time to get to them. The parks were close to each other so I could go to both if I chose.

The first park I decided to go to had a view of the Boston Skyline. I did not realize there was a place close to me where I could see the skyline. I packed my camera and headed off to find these parks. I have to admit, I became lost when finding the first park. I missed the street I was supposed to turn on because it was a street with two names {{ i.e. if I turned left it would be a different street as opposed if I went right }}. I finally found the park after my little detour and discovered it was the cutest little park. The whole walk to the park, I had to walk up mini hills. To see the view of the skyline, I had to walk up another hill. I call this day, the day of hills. Once I made it up the hill at the park, the scene of the skyline was breathtakingly beautiful. It made you forget that you were exhausted from all the hills you had to walk up to get there.

Looking out from the top of the hill, you could see all the trees with their fall colors, the entire skyline, the bridges, the planes landing and taking off from Logan. It was amazing to see. I sat on top of the hill for a while absorbing the sight, then decided to move along to the next park. The second park I went to was more of a wooded park. There were small trails and ponds you could walk around. It was a pretty sight with all of the fall leaves. The sun was also out and shining, which made for great photo ops.
