Even though most of the leaves are down around here and the weather is getting colder, there is still plenty to do outside. Some friends rented a house at Deep Creek for the weekend and invited me to visit. So I spent Friday night and in the morning we rode the train from Cumberland to Frostburg and then biked the 16 miles back. We stopped at one point on the trail to wait for the steam engine to come through a tunnel. After we completed the ride, we drove over to Swallow Falls State Park for the afternoon. Being there a few weeks earlier would have been spectacular.
