Project: Maryland State Parks

“The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.”

On a recent trip to Deep Creek Lake State Park, I picked up a Maryland State Parks brochure and, while looking through the list of MD State Parks, realized that I have visited a handful of parks in the list. Because I love an excuse to venture out into nature, I’ve decided to make it a “year-ish” long mission to finish visiting every official Maryland State Park and take a few pictures and post it here. If I have already been to a park and have a few decent picture taken in that park, then that will count towards my goal. I already know that I haven’t often taken my Nikon D90 to many parks with the sole purpose of documenting my trip – so most pictures are going to be iPhone quality. I don’t think I’m going to commit to D90 quality pictures – that might be over extending myself – though, making a special road-trip just for this project may warrant this.

There will probably be a few iterations of this page or others to keep track of my progress and post pictures as I find a better way to manage this. For now, I’ll post the pictures on Flickr in a “Project: Maryland State Parks
