Congratulations to Bryan for correctly guessing yesterday’s steeple location. I was considering finishing out the week with a number of different, “guess the steeple” posts, but I had second thoughts.
Today’s post is going of in a completely different direction, far north-west of College Park. This is Cunningham Falls state park, a 5,000 acre park situated in the Catoctin mountains. While the Catoctin National Park to the north of Cunningham Falls gets much of the fame and the spotlight as it is the home of Camp David, is neighbor offers some excellent sites as well as a glimpse into the area’s past. You can hike to the falls themselves, climb to the top of the mountain range, or visit the only remaining iron furnace in the area. Obviously, mdp has done few of these things. So what we have to offer you is this appealing and welcoming sign.
