Drizzly Morning

It is a grey and drizzly morning here at the Cascades.
The plant life will appreciate that. Mushrooms will pop up.
It is not, however, supposed to be any more than some intermittent showers from time to time, and as such it is actually a beautiful day to be out in the woods.
Plan a hike, and don't worry about the heat!


Tomorrow will be the 28th Anniversary of the Greater Worcester Land Trust's incorporation, so get your party supplies together now! We will be clearing trail on the Asnebumskit Ridge Trail off of South Road in Holden. Come join us tomorrow evening at 5:00 pm for pizza, and at 5:30 pm we hit the trail to clear the trail. There will be cake!
