Somerville

I hiked the Somerville Trailway around Flag pond the other day.. Flag Pond was dry due to the drought and I took a new route back along the canal, which the map said was a trail. However once I got over there it was faint at best with the last mile or so being best guess in the right direction.. Fun!
