Wednesday, April 27, Patapsco Valley State Park, Ellicott City, MD - 155.1 Miles, 7,553 Miles for the Trip

We got an early start since we planned to avoid the interstates and still arrive at Patapsco Valley State Park by 1:00. We took US 522, US 15/19, and I 70 to the park, and arrived at 1:05. Other than a stop & go for a garbage truck, the traffic was good.

We are in sites 416 & 417 (me in 417). Sites are on hard packed fine gravel with electric only, a picnic table & fire pit for $26.50 per night plus a $6.25 reservation fee.

Ken & Lorna stopped by shortly after we arrived. We sat around and talked in the Clam. The skies were partly cloudy and cold - I don't think it made it much above the 50's, and is is suppose to go down to 34°F tonight. We even added the sides to half the Clam to cut down on the wind & keep a bit of the heat from a small electric heater inside. Anne took a photo of me & Ken

Later in the day Karin, Brian, Ash & Zoe showed up for making so-mores and dinner (in that order; hey we are camping!)

Until Tomorrow -
