Park Quest 2011

Last year I learned about the great program put on by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources called Park Quest and knew I wanted to be a part of it! There are 20 quests in all, and so far we have completed three.

It's been so much fun for both Jackson and me. The quest part of it has really grabbed his attention. Although we like to hike anyway - it's just been a really fun element. We've discovered parks in Maryland that we might not have ever gone to.

Here is a little taste of what we've been up to!

Sandy Point State Park - a "treasure hunt" through the park with little treasures along the way.




Patapsco Valley State Park - which is one of my favorite parks, close to my house, however for this one, we were directed to a section of the park I'd never been to, and it was amazing! There were tons of deer and lots of beautiful creeks.




This past week we had the pleasure of visiting Cunningham Falls State Park. It is about 90 minutes from our house, but the ride was pleasant. This Quest took us to the peak of "Isabella's Rock".
