Shadows’ Journey In…. Timbuckhilltoo

This was a hike/walk with "Walks & Rambles In RI" meetup group.

We visited the area known as Buck Hill Management Area in the northwestern corner of RI. The trails used to be old wagon roads used for commuting and are now the paths that walk the visitor through a few ponds, grain fields and the remains of the original settlement houses(you could see a chimney, fence,..etc in the video).
We also passed by the tri-state marker that shows where Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut meet in the area.
According to the organizer, we followed Ken Weber’s 28th hike trails from his "Weekend Hikes in Rhode Island" book.

The music played in the video clip is:

1- At First It Was Chaos… by Anam Fior

2- Anam Fior by Anam Fior:
