Sick of my weekend hiking photos yet? These were just magical and I had to share. They're a week old from a fabulous day in Gunpowder Falls State Park on Memorial Day, but sadly I've been so busy that I was unable to even take a look at them until now. As of late, hiking has been the perfect get-out-of-the-house-and-forget-about-the-rest-of-the-world activity that I've been greatly in need of as the chaos of the end of the school year quickly consumes my life.
Despite the horribly hot and humid conditions last weekend (which was also the weekend our central air decided it had leaked all of its freon) we decided to get away for the afternoon. Lucky we did because the light conditions were just perfect for photography at the time we went! Aside from the beautiful outdoors there are a few spots of interest as well including a covered bridge and old buildings from a historic mill.
I love living in a city, but I have also found that there is a necessary balance that I need to find between the city and our natural world. We are lucky to have so many places surrounding Baltimore to enjoy.
How do you escape the daily grind of life?
