A Visual Feast

In the Maryland Mountains
June 28, 2019
I am in Blue Ash, Ohio, this morning. I am here to attend the memorial service for a mentor and friend. I drove, instead of flying, partly to remember my friend and all of the similar trips that he made by car between Cincinnati and Baltimore over the decades that I knew and worked with him. The last time I saw him he joked that I was one of the two best supervisors that he had during his career, I laughed, because that title was only bestowed to me on paper. We were more colleagues and over the decades that I knew him, I never felt as if I were any more than that. 

Maryland Cloud Covered Mountains
June 28, 2019
The drive yesterday was a study in contrasts. As I rolled into the mountains of Western Maryland, I was a treated to a visual feast. The mountains were clothed with clouds that made it appear as if they were massive water falls at the end of the world. It was stunning and I tried to snap a few pictures to capture it. 

They were beautiful and a stark contrast to the flat landscape here in western Ohio. 

The mountains made the trip exciting and I made really very good time on the road. 

Today, I get to drive the return trip. I hope everything goes well for my travels.
