A walk in the park
On a recent walk in Gunpowder Falls State Park, I found beauty everywhere I looked. I would stop to photograph or observe something, and another image would catch my eye. I traveled a small portion of the 120 miles of trails and left feeling I should do this more often.
It is Maryland’s largest state park, covering about 18,000 acres along the Big and Little Gunpowder Falls in Baltimore and Harford counties. It is divided into five areas ranging from the Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail in northern Baltimore County to the tidal wetlands of the Hammerman area.
A soothing midsummer sight: Water and summer light cascade over the Pot Rocks along a trail in the central area of Gunpowder Falls State Park.
