Bear Swamp Loop, Middlesex
Carol, Janet, Debby and I met at Rumney School and started out on Story Road. We met John and Kathy at North Bear Swamp Road and continued up the hill to the Middlesex Trail on Hunger. After that, it was downhill to East Bear Swamp Road and back to the school. It was the same route as the Bear Swamp Run held earlier in the year, but we went at a much more leisurely pace. It was a beautiful night for walking, cool but still summery. We identified many of the plants and even found a few chantarelles!
