Medford is about 12 Miles north of Boston on Rte 93. Exit off Rte 93 at Rte 16 which is the Mystic Valley Parkway. The Historic Mystic River is the guide to the Mystic Lakes area. This location is at the upper lake, easliy accessible on Rte 16.
A wooded area that borders a large lake that attracs wildlife and offers a serenity place for casual hiking and family walks. This photo was taken close to sunset so I could get shadows of tree limbs and accents of color in a deeply wooded area. The lingering sun was still strong enough to penetrate through the trees and paint the leaves beautifully.
