Nice hike through the Wildlife Sanctuary trails, then one of the "standard" routs up Wachusett. Hardly anyone on the Chapman or Dickens Trails, but the Harrington Trail had quite a few hikers, as expected. Summit area was moderately crowded, I've seen it much worse. It was supposed to be a beautiful sunny day, but that didn't happen. Still, the air was clear, so the views were decent. It was easy to pick out the Boston skyline.
