[edit] Expedition

Some beautiful thunderstorms earlier today (<3 thunder!) gave way to a light drizzle by the time I got out from work. I stopped at my house in Arlington Center to strip off my rain gear, check directions, and nestle my camera and powered-on GPS receiver into my bike bag. The ride up Mass Ave was flat and uneventful, but when I turned onto Charles St -- hill. Right. Arlington Heights. (And then another hill.)

The hashpoint was in someone's yard. I ventured along a driveway into the side yard, but chickened out at 6 meters away. I didn't want to invade the backyard, especially while taking pictures. So, not reached.

I must say though -- it was all worth it for the ride back down that hill.
