Further Adventures in Letterboxing!

This weekend I went letterboxing again with my boxing buddy, and we ended up hiking EIGHT MILES. Eight! That’s insane! On Saturday we did five miles at Sleeping Giant State Park (again) and Sunday – today – took us on a three mile trail that was all flat and quite easy. But after an exhausting day just before this one, it was still hard!

Saturday we took the Orange Trail at the Giant, and it was a lot more difficult than I thought it was going to be. The views were gorgeous, but it took us a long time to even find the first boxes. I found out after we got home that we had bypassed eight on the way to the first one. Whoops…

By the time we got all the boxes, we were on the other side of the park. So we had to go all the way back around to get to our car. We took the yellow trail this time because it was slightly easier according to the trail map, and we found even more amazing views like this one. There is a wide open area of rocks and in the distance you can see New Haven. It might not be clear in the picture, but it was spectacular. One of these days we’re going to hike up to that spot and have a picnic.
