Park Quest #11 ~ New Germany State Park

A long weekend escape in Western Maryland...ahhh!  

Especially when you add in a mighty surprising 67 degree temperature reading in Deep Creek, Maryland, with the clouds coming down on the mountain. Even more so when we've been used to 95+ degree weather for weeks! You couldn't even see the mountain tops due to the low, wispy, fogged clouds today!  Great day for a quest at the quaint, Maryland New Germany State Park.  Future plans are in the works for an autumnal weekend away for foliage viewing...especially given New Germany's cozy cabins (complete with kitchens and with indoor plumbing)!

With any luck, more local Park Quests are in the works this weekend, and the piece de la resistance is a trek to the Wisp Resort for the "Flying Squirrel Canopy Tour"...a multi-zip line challenge course with high ropes, net climbing, and the "leap of faith."  Plus, they have a mountain cool is that!!!  Yes, a great weekend outdoors.

As a wise (and lost) woman once told me:
"All roads lead somewhere."
Yes, it's true!  All roads lead somewhere...and may this one lead a bit closer to adventure, and even a bit o'bravery!  And...most importantly....may the harnesses hold true and secure!!
