Arrived in Catoctin!

We’re here!

We arrived in Thurmont MD at Catoctin Mountain Park yesterday evening. It was pouring raining the whole drive, but when we got here the rain let up enough for us to go on our first exploration hike on Thurmont Vista trail. It’s a quick half mile up to the top of a ridge that overlooks the town of Thurmont far below.

The forest struck us as an incredible shade of yellow green.

Our first impression was that the forest is an incredible shade of yellow green. I think since the tree trunks were still all dark from the rain, the leaves really jumped out at us as being astoundingly vivid.

We’re excited today to meet with the park rangers and get the lay of the land a little better. I’m looking forward to all the sights and adventures we’ll find in the coming weeks and I’m happy to be sharing them with you. I won’t have regular access to internet, so I can’t promise every day updates, but I will be posting as often as possible, especially to Instagram. So be sure you’re following along @bpanter.

Off to more fun!
