Walking In The Woods

Putting in more miles on the sidewalks of Saugus on such a beautiful Sunday afternoon did not appeal to me in the least. I have to avoid rough terrain and steep or long hills so walking in the woods is not something I've been able to do. But then I thought the lowlands of the Ipswich Wildlife Sanctuary might be just the thing for me.  I hopped in my truck and 25 minutes later I was walking tranquil trails and quiet carriage roads under towering trees.  Sure beats pavement!

I didn't see any birds of distinction but did come across a doe with her two fawns and a chunky woodchuck.  Unfortunately, they scampered off before I could get any photos of them.  I did get a few nice pictures though. At least I think so.

Stone walls line the carriage road leaving the visitors center.

Tranquil trails await.
