A Sunday in the Park

 Here are some more pictures of Pen Mar Park in Maryland.

The Appalachian Trail, which runs from Maine to Georgia, goes through this park, right behind the music and dancing pavilion.
This flag stands right behind the sign overlooking Maryland and Pennsylvania.
 Here is a view of the trail going north towards Maine.  The park ends not too far down this path.
This railroad is still in use and runs approximately parallel to the Appalachian trail.  We saw an automatic oiling pump on part of the track that apparently oils the trains as they go by.

Each time I see these pictures I think, "I wonder if they walked to Georgia or Main?" This time of year, I'd head for Main. LOL

Definitely! Although I have an internet friend in GA who has offered me some iced coffee if I walk in that direction...

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
