Headed out to the Blue Hills for what counts as Friday night fun these days. Parked at the eastern terminus of the Skyline Trail with the plan for an out-and-back.
I didn't get very out because I stopped to take pictures, working on my Snappy Happy badge. Unfortunately, I neglected to change my original plan to account for the photography and turned back after about 30 minutes of running time, rather than 30 minutes of clock time. It wasn't long before I realized that the sun was already setting, so I took the flat route around the final two hills in an attempt to make it back to the car before total darkness. I made it but it was getting hard to see the trail.
Speaking of the final/first two hills, I don't find the super steep scrambly bits very much fun. I don't mind being reduced to a hike on the ups but it's annoying not to be able to run down. The whole point of running up is that you can run down afterwards!
One FDF, this time trying to eat the web between my left thumb and pointer. It was most likely the same one that I saw the last time—it looked the same—supporting my theory that there is only one FDF in the Blue Hills.
