    The fellow from Blue Hills Observatory (Don) asked for the URL to this thread and he will join in here to discuss what we want to do with our visit. Normally people pay for a visit and tour. But, there is a very close relationship between Blue Hill and MWO, so he will not be charging us for the tour. I will be making a "nice" donation to the Observatory to say thanks though.

    This should be a lot of fun and a good chance to learn about Blue Hill and what they do. We are set for June 5th on the BH Obs schedule.

    I'm undecided if I'm going to this because of other commitments i.e. photo workshop in RI and MWO annual meeting on the 4th.

    I don't know and I don't want to know what you mean by "nice" but, I'd like to make a donation to the Blue Hills Obs too..

    Don, when you join into the thread, can you let me know how I can make a donations.

    We can also get burgers of any type including turkey, bison, veggie.... hot dogs of any type, fish.... salad so it can be a real shindig if you want. Or you can all just pack PB&J (my favorite hiking lunch) and eat on the trail.

    I agree with Chris, packing a lunch would be easier. And I'll just pack a cheeseburger! [/QUOTE]

    We can heat your cheeseburger up on the BBQ, microwave, stove or oven

    Alison, if Brad doesn't make it, I can pick you up around 8:30 and bring you back. I would be leaving the hill around 5:00.
    You can hang out at the Observatory and hike as much or as little as you want.

    I look forward to seeing you all. I will want to hike the longest trail some of you choose. However, I may need to choose the shortest hike due to other obligations. I won't know until June 1 what I can do. The suggestion to come up Skyline from Houghtons Pond/Reservation headquarters is a good one. That takes 45 to 90 minutes depending on the exact route, how many pictures you take, how long you stop to eat....
    There is plenty of parking at the Red Dot trailhead south parking lot by the Trailside Museum on Route 138. The green wolcott path starts from the north parking lot and you can connect to skyline several ways from Reservation Headquarters or Houghtons pond on Hillside Street where there is plenty of parking. If you prefer, call with questions 617-696-0562
