Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Trolley Trail

The Trolley Trail starts/ends in Oella, MD.  It is paved version of the original trolley tracks that ran from Baltimore to Oella/Ellicott City, MD.  Now its a nice gentle walking trail.

We took this walk the day after Christmas - a rather gray day but the rain held off until after we returned home.


Granddaughter enjoyed walking it.



A portion is on a wooden walkway.



The original construction required blasting through some rock.


A bridge goes over the trail.




You are in the woods most of the time.



It was the perfect backdrop for some family photos.


Dan and I.


William and Sarah.


Matt, granddaughter and Emily.

Our halfway was a stop at the Breadery.  We turned around at that point and walked downhill back to our car.
