North Central Railroad Trail (Part 2)

NCR Trail. Between Cockeysville and Sparks, Maryland. Picture taken with a Canon Digital Rebel.

Okay, So I packed my Rails-to-Trails book, loaded up the bike and the Quick N EZ Bike Trailer and hit the NCR Trail. It was beautiful. The trail is crushed limestone but very smooth. It was easy to ride with any type of a bike. You could even push a stroller if you were so inclined. I am told the trail gets muddy when wet, but on the day I went there was no rain in sight. We left from the Asheland parking area and headed north. We quickly encountered the Gunpowder falls river and we were never too far from it after that. The best part about the trail is that you are basically biking through a tunnel of foliage. It is mostly shade, but there is enough sun breaking through the leaves to make it beautiful and interesting.

North Central Railroad Trail

I am planning on biking the NCR Trail with my son this weekend. It's been about 10 years since I have done it. I rediscovered the trail in a trail book put out by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. You can find other trails using their website TrailLink.com

Hot! Hot! Hot! Baltimore Inner Harbor.

Hot! Hot! Hot! Picture taken with a Canon Digital Rebel.

Last month there was a fire juggling spectacular at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. I finally got around to sorting through the pictures and found this nice one of a 5-way torch juggling circle. Just so you know, it was a hot night without the fire.
