Intrepid Trekkers

                        I encountered the lowly and the high and mighty on the Daniels trail today.

                                                            Gotta give credit to this guy.

                                                           The family circus.

Daniels to the Davis Tunnel

With temperatures still below normal for August, hiking is still good in the morning. Did five miles today.

Looking west in the Davis tunnel.

                                   Westbound train about to come out of the Davis tunnel.

The Patapsco river beside the Davis tunnel.

Down Alberton Road, through the Dorsey Tunnel, over the Eureka Bridge, to the Davis Tunnel

Hiked about seven miles this morning from Alberton Road to the Davis tunnel and back, along the Patapsco river. Another mountain  bike event was in progress, the Patapsco Epic. The Dorsey tunnel was leaking. The interior brick masonry was crumbled in several areas from water damage. I was surprised by that and the banged up condition of many of the ties on the Eureka bridge over the Patapsco.

Again looking west out the western portal of the Dorsey tunnel.

Looking west across the Eureka bridge toward the Davis tunnel.

Looking east, back toward the Dorsey tunnel, from above the eastern portal of the Davis Tunnel.
