After our hike we headed into Thurmont, MD (Pop. 5,588) and had a late lunch at the Kountry Kitchen. I had a crab-cake sandwich and Lydia had a crab salad sandwich. They both came on a pretzel roll, which is exactly what it sounds like and totally delicious.

On the way out to the car we notice that all of the parking meters in Thurmont had been decorated with spooky figures for Halloween. These two were especially disturbing.

Hiking this weekend in the Catoctin Mountain Park, home to Camp David (formerly Shangri-La). The weather was absolutely perfect and aside from the continuous roar of motorcycles on the mountain roads nearby, it was a beautiful place to spend the day wandering around.

The leaves are just starting to turn green to yellow, but as you can see here it was mostly yellow.

But also red.

And a few that weren't quite sure which color they were.
