Twenty-two walking group members braved the wind and cool temperatures to walk around a portion of the Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge / Watertown. We met around 11 am at the Storey Chapel by the main entrance and walked about 3 miles and viewed some amazing statuary. Early spring flowers were blooming; including crocus, scilla, a patch of winter aconite, witch hazel, and a hellebore. The cemetery has an amazing collection of unusual trees including two types of cypress by one of the ponds.
After visiting the Washington Tower with amazing views of Boston and the Bigelow Chapel and the Sphinx Civil War Memorial, we went to visit the Mary Baker Eddy Monument.
After returning to the entrance some decided to head home rather than eat the bagged lunch outside. As we got ready to head to the park for lunch Hal Shear kindly invited ten of us back to his nearby condo where we were treated to fantastic views of the Boston skyline and Charles River and a warm place to eat our lunches.
