10th Annual New Year's Day Walk at Prospect Hill Park Largest Yet


Over 100 folks of all ages braved chilly temps and started off the new year on the right foot!

After taking photos at the South Gate (too many people to fit in!), the group departed and walked up the paved service road towards Little Prospect. While some continued on the road to the destination, others took the very direct Boston Rock Trail, which included climbing a stone staircase. Spectacular views, hot cider, yummy cocoa and homemade treats greeted hikers at the top. Owly the piggy-bank collected $70, and everyone had a great time. Be sure to join us next year! 

Here's a photo from the hike.

What are the natural features which make a township handsome? A river, with its waterfalls and meadows, a lake, a hill, a cliff or individual rocks, a forest, and ancient trees standing singly. Such things are beautiful; they have a high use which dollars and cents never represent. If the inhabitants of a town were wise, they would seek to preserve these things, though at considerable expense; for such things educate more than any hired teachers or preachers, or at any present recognized system of school education. -- Henry David Thoreau
