Morning Wood

Thurmont, MD – Camping in spring is always hit or miss, but we were fortunate as we rolled up to Cunningham Falls State Park in Maryland that the sun was shining and the air was warm. Here we set up camp, tested out some new gear and enjoyed being the only souls in the park. We took some time before heading out the following morning to hike up to the falls.

Throughout the 18th and 19th Centuries these hills were harvested of their wood, which was used for charcoal, timber and to clear the way for farming. By the 20th Century, the hills were completely deforested. A new forest was replanted by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930s.
