we had a great time camping with some friends at deep creek lake out in western maryland. we camped at deep creek state park which was a first for us. it was pretty full but you wouldn’t have known it as it was actually really quiet. the lake is just a short walk from the campground and there are a number of trails that you can hike right there as well. we also did take a short drive to a place called the rock maze which was probably one of the coolest places i have been. its these passage ways that weave in and out of these giant rocks that are all over grown with vines and plants. we had a lot of fun exploring it, lindy really loved it too! then finally it wouldn’t be a trip to the mountains without some river time, so we went and checked out swallow falls state park. there are several waterfalls in the park, we didn’t get to see all of them, dogs are not allowed in the park so we couldn’t explore a lot. we got here in via a trail that is outside of the park that hits the river and one of the falls.
here are some photos i took on the trip, hope you enjoy!
