Monday November 25

The weather today will be mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 48 and a low around 36. Southwest wind 9 to 11 mph, with gusts as high as 22 mph.

I was surprised to wake up to snow yesterday morning but it didn’t stop me from taking a hike at Deep Creek Lake State Park. My friend and I did the Indian Turnip Trail, to the Lookout Trail, to Beckman’s Trail, and finally to Meadow Mountain Trail. About 5 snowy and windy miles. Some of the best scenery around, though!

Deep Creek Lake State Park has a few camp host positions available for the summer of 2020. For more information, please contact Ken Dzaack at or the park at 301-387-5563. A typical camp host is a volunteer that stays at the campground all summer to help other campers, answer questions, and maintain the campground.

There is a 2004 Chrysler Sebring Limited Convertible for sale in our online marketplace. A daily driver.

This is a short week for a lot of us and I know, for one, I am looking forward to our family get together here at the lake! Share a photo of your favorite part of Thanksgiving (…food / family / friends / whatever it is that makes you smile…) with us! Send it to us by Friday and we will choose one random winner to receive a free gift from Deep Creek Times!

Take a minute to browse the Maryland State Arts Council’s Maryland Marketplace. This site includes links to Maryland artists of all disciplines.
