Indian Hill Farm Reservation

Spring is in full force in New England and its arrival has definitely increased my motivation to be productive both indoors and outdoors.  Today I was feeling a bit unmotivated after having a great workout yesterday, but my friend Mike convinced me that it was so beautiful outside that I couldn’t possibly pass it up.  I decided to go check out one of the local Essex County Greenbelt properties that I recently learned about.

I headed to Indian Hill Farm Reservation which is a 150′ hill tucked between a nice coutry road and a pond used as a local water supply.  My walk went up the hill, down to the water, along the water, and then back up the hill before taking the path back to the car.  It was quite muddy in the flat grassy parts.

The whole walk only took about a half hour but it was nice to get some fresh air and decent pictures on a gorgeous day.  The third picture didn’t come out quite as nicely as I had hoped.  From the top of the hill there is a clear view back into Newburyport about 5 miles distant.  You can see several church steeples and the new windmill in the industrial park, but in the photo the white features blended into the bright horizon.
