The first Tuesday of each month Vantage House fitness staff sponsors a hike. For June the original destination was a wash out because of the heavy rain and flooding over the Memorial Day weekend. [I'm sure you read or heard about the flooding in Ellicott City, MD. We are very close to that though that wasn't the destination this time.]
The new location was a trail connecting one park to another. It was a gorgeous day for a hike/walk.
From the parking lot we walked along soccer fields before reaching the woods.
The trail then went under the intra county connector rt 200 which is a fairly new toll road.
I was impressed by the design detail of the columns under the highway.
A trail sign confirmed the trail we were on, Little Paint Branch Trail. Paint Branch is a creek in the area but I don't remember seeing it. Our trail was paved but Viper wasn't.
The trail brought us out to another park with quite a large pond.
Lots of birds singing especially a mockingbird.
We returned the same way we came to our bus for the ride home.
On July 3rd we are headed to Annapolis and Quiet Waters Park.
