Wanting to take advantage of the last warm day of Autumn color we put the top down on the Roadster and headed for the Western Maryland mountains. I plotted out a route, checking "no highways"on Google Maps, and chose the southern route. We'd head west through Maryland on back roads, cross the West Virginia panhandle, and finally back into Maryland. . . .
Spruce Forest Artisan Village. These cabins have all been brought here from elsewhere and used by resident artisans. Only a few were in-residence that day. . . .
Alta Schrock's, the founder of Penn Alps. . . .
The Eli Miller Shed was built from components of a 19th century plank house near Springs, PA. It houses the Metal Sculptor, Mike Edelman. . . .
Markley House is the oldest house in the Village. . . .
Gary Yoder. . . .
Winterbury House was originally a stagecoach stop. . . .
Lynn Lais, a potter, now uses it as his shop. An addition has been added to the back where he makes his pottery. . . .
Berkley Springs State Park. I think it has to be the smallest State Park, since it only takes up one block of town. . . .
George Washington's bathtub (click on link to see) that I mentioned in my previous post. Then we headed home, tired, but happy with our little excursion even though most of the leaves were off the trees in Western Maryland. As we got closer to home I realized we didn't have to drive all that distance to see colorful leaves. This is what is in color in our own woods. . . .
This tree stands alone in its colorfulness. . . .
