Ascent Trip Report

Did this as a requirement for the hiking merit badge. 20 hike in one day. Knee blown out after 10 miles. Got through the next 10 by the charity of someone giving me an Ace bandage. Despite what people think, Massachusetts in NOT flat, especially Worcester County. Wachuset is a must. It has views to Boston, west to Greylock, and north to Monadnock. It is also a holy spot for Native Americans, as it has been for centuries.
