Whitney And Thayer Woods (Cohasset, MA)

The unseasonably mild weather (at least mild for New England) has allowed for a longer than usual fall hiking season.  Taking advantage of this unusually warm weather, I traveled to the South Shore jewel of Whitney And Thayer Woods in Cohasset, MA.


With the exception of a stray cloud here and there, a clear blue sky, bright sun and an intermittent breeze greeted me at the woods.

The park is a loop that covers a few miles.  There is a bike trail and runners frequent the trails.


Although the peak of the fall foliage season has passed, there were still some vibrant orange, gold and amber colors hanging on to the trees.

A rolling stone gathers no…never mind.


There were quite a few dogs on the paths.  It was a perfect day for dog walking.  I have determined that getting most dogs to pose for the camera is about as easy as splitting the atom.

Lilly enjoyed the warm sun.


Chester was very excited to be at the park.


Olive was happy to see me.  Don’t worry.  She was a sweetheart.


I didn’t get this dog’s name.  But he or she posed perfectly!


I have more shots from my trip to Whitney And Thayer.  So, I am breaking up this blog into two parts.  The second part will include some photos from the Weir River Farm located just outside of the wooded area.  For a sneak peak and for some additional photos not included in this blog, stop by my Facebook page: New England Nomad
