How long have you been going to the Blue Hills?
I’ve been going to the Blue Hills since high school, so roughly 10 years? That seems like such a long time!

What is your favorite spot in the Blue Hills?
Any spot with a view. We tend to frequent Buck Hill when in the Blue Hills. I like the Blue Hills because there is just a plethora of hikes you can choose from whether it be easy, hard, long or short. It just depends on the trail(s) you take and what you make of it.

Do you like to hike alone or with company?
I usually hike with my fiancĂ©, Chris. And no outdoor adventure is complete without our sidekick, Milo, a Shiba Inu. He’s been hiking since he was a puppy and enjoys it as much as we do.

What volunteer activities do you do for the Friends of the Blue Hills?
