I never realized how much I appreciated nature until after my return “home” to Maryland. Having lived in the perpetual Sunshine State for over 13 years, having access to excessive nature trails and beautifully green parks has been a very nice transition.
I was exposed to Centennial Park in Howard County by a very close family member, for a morning walk in mid October…while the weather was still perfect. On a balmy 58 degree morning, we headed out to start our 2.6 mile walk around the park lake. Camera in tow, I had planned to TRY to stay with my walking partner but the visual aspects of the park in fall hindered me from doing so. To your benefit, here’s the results of my views around the park:
“The 337-acre park features a spectacular 54-acre man-made lake, which is stocked by the State Department of Fisheries, and is home to a variety of wildlife such as white-tailed deer, beavers, foxes, turtles, herons, and many other bird species. You can walk, run or bike the 2.6-mile paved pathway that encircles the lake or the 7.3 miles of interconnecting paved pathway that includes links to surrounding neighborhoods.”
