a walk along the youghiogheny river to swallow falls

Friday, August 17:  Sadly today is our last day of vacation at Deep Creek Lake.  We have to check out of our cabin tomorrow and head back home to Virginia.  We have a mostly lazy day, prodded in part by a near-constant drizzle all day, but we did take a little walk along the Youghiogheny River to Swallow Falls.

Fare thee well, Deep Creek Lake!

    1. Thank you Carol. It’s funny, some of the strange rock formations remind me of Oman, but in Oman, because of no vegetation, they are all laid bare for the world to see. I guess that’s why Oman is a geologist’s heaven. Here, the vegetation is so thick, it’s hard to find the formations under all that green! 🙂

    1. Thanks Robin. It was quite dark in the thick forest along the river, and it even rained a bit while we were there. But my sons are always adventurous enough to jump in no matter what the weather!
