Little Patuxent River - Lake Elkhorn to Savage Mill

Hiked the Little Patuxent river from Lake Elkhorn to Savage Mill this afternoon with Chris. The blue heron was in Lake Elkhorn near the underpass to the trail head.

This doe was with two others. We watched them for ten minutes without spooking them as they browsed in the the trailside thickets. A few more photos can be seen here.

I had never heard of these rapids/falls just upstream from Savage Mill.They are pretty impressive.

At trail's end we climbed up the hill from the river beside this support building that once powered the looms of Savage Mill.
