Did you get a chance to get out and enjoy Saturday's incredible weather? My wife and I did -- we laced up the hiking boots and headed out to Quarry Hill in Rochester.

Now, I'm a little bit embarrassed to admit we've lived here in the Med City for more than five years now and until Saturday had never been out to jewel that is Quarry Hill.

Quarry Hill Nature Center, located just off County Road 22/East Circle Drive in northeast Rochester, is a very cool place! And, while we were there for around an hour and hiked just over 2 miles along the trails, there are still a TON of other trails and things we didn't see. (Hello? The Quarry Hill caves? Too cool!) So, yeah, we'll definitely be heading back this summer.

And seeing that I'm a history buff, the fact that Quarry Hill was once, in fact, used to mine sandstone was fascinating to me.  Also fascinating is its history as part of a self-sufficient 500-acre farm that used to be part of the Rochester State Hospital, which once stood where FMC is now.

Too cool! We had a great time. Here are a few pictures from our trip to Quarry Hill:
