"Heavenly Hill"

[click image to enlarge]

Many are taking advantage of a holiday today(Martin Luther King Day) and a fresh blanket of snow to go sledding at Furnace Brook Golf Course. This is close to the site of Quincy's one and only skiing area, "Heavenly Hill" which was closed in the early 1970s.

My sons used to sled down this hill, but I never knew it was a former ski slope. No wonder it was a great place to sled.

I'm glad you all stopped by today. Unfortunately my childhood memories of the 840' rope tow involved getting entangled in the rope tow by my scarf. I didn't get too hung up on that early experience because I did a lost of sledding and tobogganing after that and brought my sons here for sledding and tubing.

MMORPG Games are alluring for everybody, especially for men and boys. Play World of Warcraft, but not have WoW Gold, it’s just a headache. Because World of Warcraft Gold is a needed. At the same time, WoW Power Leveling is also important, It could be got from Cheap WoW Gold. There is a interesting fact. Many WoW players like wear jordan shoes or basketball shoes , and with the tiffany jewelry. It’s just the interest ing thing in the game world.
