Another advantage of living here at Vantage House is the walking pathways. There are two lakes I can walk around. Today I went to Lake Kittamaqundi which is a jewel in the downtown of Columbia, MD. It's 1.4 miles around it and .8 miles to and from Vantage House. A good walk.
Here's a view of the lake from the farthest end. Vantage House is not visible.
Below is the nice pathway maintained by the Columbia Association. Crews were out on the lake with debris sweepers as I walked this morning.
Next time I should bring a proper camera to capture some of the flora and fauna.
