A Walk at Minuteman National Park

We had a great day that consisted of both relaxation and a little exploring too. Discovered a great park only 10 minutes away from our hotel. After a leisurely morning, we decided to go over and spend a little time getting some fresh air and exercise.

This is the path that leads off into the woods...

It really was a beautiful day. The forecast had called for cloudiness and mid 70s, but it ended up being closer to 80 degrees. There were some beautiful trails here.

Its been a while since we have been hiking, and it was so great to be in the great outdoors! We keep saying we are going to do more hiking and biking - this summer we are determined to make it a priority.

I thought this tree was really pretty with the stonework around its foundation.

Along the path there were markers, and descriptions of places and people from the opening of hostilities in the Revolutionary War. We didn't take pictures of most of them, but they were interesting to read. I thought about the fact that some of the trees surrounding us may have been standing during those times as well.

This house was the only standing one along the path. The rest of them were just ruins, or the remains of a foundation.

After our trip to Minuteman Park, we went to the Burlington Mall. Standard mall stores etc, and I didn't take pictures there, but we had a good time. I like a bit of shopping now and then. :)

Today it's back to the capital region for us. We are having a relaxing morning in our hotel room, but soon we will be packing up and heading home.
