Ascent Trip Report

... when I first went thru my journal looking for summits and dates climbed to add up to, I mistook St. Francis' Cemetery for the Bunker Hill Monument; today rectified that error, in the early afternoon I found a locked gate with a contractor working at the church sending me to the 303 Bunker Hill Street Rectory's side door (doorbell) for permission, I found friendly greeting and was sent back to the locked gate being unlocked for me by an elderly woman, left to wander the cemetery and to relock the gate behind me afterward, on a sloping hillside behind the rectory, the peakbagger coordinates are centered just below the upper slope fence line at the John Higgins Family Tomb 1841 (only tomb) with its view down to and across the Mystic River.
