Gunpowder south (blue) trail – 5.41 miles 🚘 Masemore rd. Parkville 21120 🚘 🌿 “Happiness is a long walk with a friend (- Mag in my case).” 🌿 I thought I’ll be smart coming here this morning because it’s a wonderful secret location, no one knows about.

NCR – Weisburg rd. to Frederick rd. – North

9/4/19 – 4.56 miles 🎂 “Country roads take me gnome.” 🎂 It is my birthtoday so I am treating myself with NCR. It’s always a good idea! Mostly empty – especially in the mornings and on the weekdays – and such an easy walk. No elevation changes and the trail is a crushed stone andContinue reading “NCR – Weisburg rd. to Frederick rd. – North”

Lake Roland – Lakeside dr. off of Falls rd. – main entrance

❤️ “Forgotten places, Do they wait for us to come and sit there?” – Architha Reddy ❤️ In 2001 I came here with my then employer’s English Bulldogs to go for a walk.

Falls road – Wrights lane (Lake Roland) – Orange trail

We start out as usual parking on the side of Falls rd. following the red trail paint. This morning from one of the houses above a pool is getting drained I guess because it smells like pool water and the whole path is flooded. I have to tippy toe around not to get wet. TheContinue reading “Falls road – Wrights lane (Lake Roland) – Orange trail”

Lake Roland – Blue trail – 3 miles

Entering as always from the Falls rd entrance….at Wrights lane. Following the trail up to just before the bridge then we turn left and head slightly downhill to the water.

June 26th **** ” Summer heat is proof that Mother Nature is menopausal.” Maxine **** It’s 7:30am and already in the upper 70s.

Oregon ridge park – red-yellow trails

June 24th **** “The soul that sees beauty often times walks alone.” **** To tell you guys the truth, for some reason I always forget about this park. Even though I spend a lot of time around Hunt Valley. It is so convenient and amazingly spacious – over 1000 acres – within 15 minutes ofContinue reading “Oregon ridge park – red-yellow trails”

NCR – Sparks rd to Corbett rd

(June 20 2019) “Go where you most feel alive.” Today’s “adventure” is starting from the Sparks road parking lot. We are here early, thanks to the heat and humidity index for later. Both of us rather take the 60s. Nice shady spot in front, since only 4 cars are present. Good to be an earlyContinue reading “NCR – Sparks rd to Corbett rd”
