Ponkapoag Pond Cabin Weekend

Blue Hills Reservation
Randolph, MA

March 28-30, 2008
Ponkapoag Pond Our weekend in the wilderness began Friday night as 10 of us headed out to the AMC's cabins on Ponkapoag Pond at Blue Hills Reservation in Randolph, MA.
Cabin We stayed at the water's edge in two rustic cabins furnished with wood stoves and bunk beds.
Cabin (and Hilary) Saturday morning we got up early to hike the trail surrounding the pond. The weather was gorgeous, but very chilly.
Group crossing the bog Victoria, Libby, Hilary, Willa, Robin, Ashley and Katie cross a bog along the trail.

After a lunch break, we embarked on a longer, afternoon hike where Robin, Libby and Victoria discovered a little known fact that boulders do indeed have eyes!
