Chebacco Woods Day Hike

I woke up this morning with no motivation and no real plan for the day so I thought I would check out some of the local trails.   A 30 minute drive north brought me to the trail head at Chebacco (rhymes with tobacco) Woods.  It was very humid and a little buggy which didn't help my motivation one bit.   The layout of the interconnecting trails didn't lend themselves to devising a clearly defined loop so I just started walking and let the trail in front of me determine my way.

 Walking along Round and Gravelly Ponds.

 Easy walking most of the way.

It didn't take long for me to get a little bored with this place.  The terrain was too flat and uninteresting for me to truly enjoy it.  I also think because I was walking aimlessly without a defined goal for the day contributed to my boredom.  If I was hiking to reach a specific destination, or trying to cover a fixed number of miles  for the day, I think I would have been more focused.

Don't get me wrong.  Chebacco Woods is certainly a nice place to visit.  My mind just wasn't in the game today.
