Annapolis Rocks, Maryland, October 31, 2016 — Today the final curtain descended on the 2016 ridgerunner season, and an anticlimactic ending it was.
This morning I dashed up to Annapolis Rocks to meet Kyle, our long-term Maryland ridgerunner. Together we struck the caretaker’s tent, packed up the gear and marched it down the mountain for storage in the apartment the ridgerunners share at Washington Monument State Park.
The tent platform is clear again.
Caretaker sign in April and October.
The view is always spectacular.
Ironically it’s Halloween, admittedly a scary day. After today, with the scolds gone, you are not free to trash the woods. That would be really scary.
