Would you look at that! It didn't rain today!

All the better for a long walk, I suppose. My Little Brother and I took to the paths at the Arboretum this afternoon to check out which interesting trees we could find there.

We scaled Peters Hill, which is billed as the second-highest point in all of Boston. (Question: Did I visit the first on Thursday?)

I'm not a very outdoorsy person, but I thought the place was very peaceful; a nice little enclave of serenity within the city.

And, it was pretty cool to see trees native to Japan, China, and parts of Europe side-by-side with trees native to Boston. Makes you wonder how they pulled that off with the varied climates of each country.

Oh, and that title? About getting lost? Yeah, that actually happened. Whoops.
