Breakheart reservation

this is not too far from our apartment, just a 10-minute drive or something. its called the breakheart reservation and we sometimes go there for a walk. its really pretty there, in any season and quite big. there are many trails, and you can easily spend hours hiking. 
once it was a native american camp site, but early european settlers cut down the original pine trees for crops and to prevent surprise attacks from the native americans. during the civil war it was used as a training field for soldiers, who found the place very remote and dull. they named it camp breakheart hill (still cannot figure out why exactly that name, but well...)
