Family Walk to The Salem Witches Caves, Ashland, MA

Sunday, October 20, 2019 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM

Join Boston Family Outings and Outdoors RX from 1-2:30 PM to visit the caves where Sarah Clayes and others escaped prosecution as Salem witches. This short relatively gentle 1.5 mile walk is on what was the plantation of former governor Thomas Danforth. Sarah Clayes was one of the five women who lived in one of these caves for the winter of 1692, until the hysteria over witches passed. The accused and their families were a significant portion of the initial population of Framingham. Bring your witches broom along with sun screen and please wear sturdy shoes. Walk cancels for rain.

I love the beauty of the mountains, the social camaraderie, and the physical challenge that hiking brings. BK, Before Kids, I was a co-leader with the HB committee, but when my boys, now 4.5 yrs and 1.5 yrs, came along I shifted gears to the Family Committee. As a family, we have always done a LOT of camping. Now that their legs are getting longer and stronger, we are throwing in more and more hiking. We love sharing our love of the outdoors in all it's versions with other families!

I'm an "alumni leader" for the Family Outings group. I led ski, camping and hiking trips for many years until my son "aged out" but I still love hanging out with kids and sharing my joy in all things outdoorsy with kids and parents alike. I also love to cook for groups and get folks together over the prep table.

I was the long time chair of the family outings committee and led dozens of trips over the years before my kids "aged out". I love to play outside - especially on XC skis, in a solo whitewater canoe or on my sailboat and I thoroughly enjoy teaching kids (and adults).
