Massapoag Trail, off Belcher St. 11-12-16

There are all kinds of ways to get into the Massapoag Brook Trail in Sharon. This one is off Belcher Street, with a little bit of parking just before the Rod & Gun Club’s parking lot. You can take the trail to Devil’s Rock, or just enjoy the woods and stone walls.

Love these stone walls, even when crushed by falling trees.

And boardwalks, crossing drought-dried streams and formerly muddy areas:

Greens and browns, and good orange trail markings: img_9400

Always something to see, a new stage in the plant-life, new color combinations:

Fungi as floral still life:

Because the trail borders the Gun Club, you do hear gun-shots in the woods – not as peaceful as many trails. And there is this abandoned car hood, clearly used for target practice. img_9407
