Out of Town: Sights of Deep Creek, Maryland

Earlier this summer, Hubby and I traveled to Deep Creek for the wedding festivities of our very good friends.  While we were there, we took some time to do some really cool things, like the Garrett County Bear Trail.  But we also took the time to see some really gorgeous sites.

First off, we stayed at the Wisp resort, just like last time, and this time we took advantage of some of the things the resort had to offer.  We actually rode a chair lift up the side of the mountain, which gave us an absolutely breathtaking view of Deep Creek Lake.  Even though I am scared of heights, I really enjoyed out little ride.  After all, how often do you get a chance to do something like this?

In addition to the Bear Trail, Garrett County also has a Barn Quilt Trail.

 Barn Quilts are these gorgeous quilts, based of of actual existing quilts, painted in barns, to help showcase Appalachian heritage and culture.  We did not get to see all of the barns, but we did get to see a few, and they are breathtaking.

We also got to visit a petting zoo, quite unexpectedly.  One of the shops in the area, Schoolhouse Earth, has a petting zoo full of rescued animals.  They were so adorable!



This just goes to show you, there is always something new to do and find when you are on vacation, even if its a place you have been before. I can't wait until the next time we visit Deep Creek, to find even more treasures!
