While I’ve generally been avoiding the Brook Path in Wellesley of late due to its increasing crowdedness, I made an exception on Saturday morning, getting out early to include it on my running route. I pretty much had the trail to myself.
Here’s 1 reason why it’s can be so crowded though: It’s convenient for many, and just plain beautiful.
Though I’m feeling a tad lucky now that I didn’t happen to be running by when this tree came crashing down Saturday on the stretch between Caroline Street and Abbott Road, right across from where I took the photo of that pink tree the day before. Mother Nature’s way of saying, hey Wellesley, you wanna shut down the playgrounds? Take this.
