Arrived at Quabbin Park early this morning in hopes the gate would be closed. Not to often this happens . It was a real treat to hike to Enfield Lookout and nearly back to Goodnough Dike entrance before seeing the first hikers of the morning. The solitude was priceless, enjoying nearly three hours of Quabbin Parks Wildlife hearing only few mechanical sounds off in the distance.
Deer were plentiful seeing ( 5/3/2) while hiking.
No doubt the " Dead of Winter" has its grip on the reservoir. I did see one red tail hawk and one eagle in my travels.
These five deer where on the move looking for food.
