Comments
Comments: Quick night hike up Mt. Wachusett. I'm still getting used to night hiking- even with the insane rock work, I had to take care to not veer off the main path. The Bicentennial Trail, or at least the short section I hiked, was quite wet with a lot of standing water and slick leaves.. The Pine Hill Trail had a lot of wet rock. Almost took a tumble going down. Cold and windy at the summit, but didn't need a flashlight due to all the city lights from places like Worcester, Fitchburg, Lowell, etc. Another night hike in the books.
