My Daily Photo Walk: Gambrill Mill
(Click any photo to enlarge; hover mouse over photo for caption.)
11 - Gambrill 2 11 - Gambrill 1 At least once a month I like to walk Gambrill Mill, part of the Monocacy Battlefield. There is a great circular trail that's part boardwalk, along with architecture, beautiful white sycamores, streams, a pond, and the Monocacy River. Wildlife that I saw today included a cat, a fat groundhog, squirrels, a hawk, and a number of small birds.
11 - Gambrill 3 11 - Gambrill 4 There is a wonderful Italianate-style mansion, but if you don't know to look for it, it's easy to miss. Often times there is a truck or car parked in front of it, so today I was lucky that there was neither. The house is now used as a preservation training center by the National Park Service.
As I was walking the loop, a long freight train came by (sorry, I was not in a good place to see it), and at least seven large jets flew over. The one I photographed said Qatar, a fast-growing Arab airlines. Gambrill Mill must be in the BWI flyways.

One of the approaches to BWI is straight down Rt 26 and then turns just west of Eldersburg. I think its more likely that the plane was headed for Dulles.
Its curious but my house is on the route to Shock Trauma. Many times I will learn of a medivac and a few minutes later the helicopter goes over my house.
