A friend called to see if I’d be interested in heading over to Patapsco Valley State Park to hike all the hills we could find today. How could I resist? Of course I said yes, knowing that the hike would be a long 11-miler.
So off I went, to find my friend at Lost Lake. Once a feeder pond for the mill race that powered the Iron Works further down the river.
It was a picture perfect day even if it was a bit warm and humid.
Along the way I got to enjoy some of the historical remnants of the past.
I got to enjoy clean water flowing down a rocky stream.
We pondered on the craziness of the Off-Road bikers. Where does the trail go? We think they’re just nuts.
Wildlife was abound with chipmunks, tons of birds (no shots), an Eastern Box turtle, and a doe with her two fawns.
I wanted to stay and cool off in this pool below a waterfall. But alas, the hills called us and we continued on the trail.
Hope you were able to do something adventurous today and enjoyed the great outdoors like we did! Bella
