Alas! Found!

After nearly 7 years I brought reinforcements to help me try to find the Maryland Black Eyed Susan. I must have been over thinking the clues because they really are not difficult. 

Fortunately, Blue Delft was not over thinking and even though I struggled yet again, she came to the rescue and we were able to add a pretty posy to our logbooks. Many thanks. 

More Ellicott City Adventures

Finding a Wood Thrush box is always a treat and this one was no different. The spot was absolutely gorgeous with the flowing trees bursting.

As if that weren't great enough, another WT gem!

I loved the Trolly Line trail.  We passed some interesting characters. I was particularly impressed with the guy who juggled while he walked.

On our way out of town, we also snagged a quick bite and learned about young love.

It was a wonderful day in a darling town.  Thanks to all the planters, and to Janila, for bringing me here!


I think I need a lesson on how to pronounce the name of this state park.  Enjoyed this hike but the bridge on the way to the bobcat wasn't my favorite.  Janila and BD got a kick out of me running across.

And to make matters worse, an enormous spider jumped on me when we were trying to sail away.  I screamed and danced around giving my friends quite a show.  I wasn't amused...


Janila asked Blue Delft and I to accompany her to a creepy spot she had been eyeballing.  It was a perfect day to get on the trail so we set out.

We were first greeted by lots of very steep steps. The approach to the altar was lovely.  We saw a couple of deer and took in the vibes of the supposedly haunted area.

I was glad to have these pals along with me.  I don't think I would have been brave enough to go it alone!
