"Great walk, great bunch of guys! Joel did a phenomenal job."
Sunny 4.5 mile walk from Jamaica Pond to The Fens, Boston! Conversation flowed along the Muddy River (which ultimately goes into the Charles River). The seven of us got a first-hand look at lake, stream and pond environments in the City, a unique park system designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and called Boston’s Emerald Necklace.
Afterwards, near Fenway Park, we had delicious Thai food.
