Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County are in full bloom finally. Very jungle-like compared to about 3 or 4 weeks ago! I hope you’ve had a great spring and are ready to escape to Deep Creek and the mountains of Western Maryland.

The Garrett County Celtic Festival (formerly McHenry Highland Festival) was moved to Friendsville this year and it took place on Fri/Sat, June 3rd & 4th. Hope you got a chance to check in there…from all accounts, it was a huge success and visitors like the flat terrain and how everything was spread through town. Weather was great!  This Highland warrior was just about to toss(or try to) a 56-pound Weight for Height over a cross bar. The weight is tossed with one hand only from a standing position and the athlete is allowed three tries at each height. The bar is raised until only one athlete remains. Top professional athletes can toss the 56 lb weight over a bar 18 feet off the ground. Thank you, Bob Carney, for the great pic!
