It's a grand hotel. I haven't stayed there, but enjoying seeing the inside and checkout their shopping area which seemed extensive as I recall.

That place I know well, though I've never stayed there. It's in a gorgeous setting, and it's got a few ghost stories.

I have heard that this place is beautiful inside as well. I have not seen it,as I don't have that much money to spend for a night. Ha! Ha!
George said…
I'd love to be able to stay in this magnificent hotel, but I guess that will have to wait for another lifetime.
Rose said…
It would probably be so far out of my league that I would not be comfortable there!
Lovely photos of our beautiful Fairmont Springs, Banff (no 'i' btw.) We have family in Alberta and visited Banff, Calgary etc. and hope to again soon.

Great photos... I want to go there--but we keep hearing about everything in Canada (in that Rockies area) being SO expensive. Did you all camp --or stay in a motel? We don't camp----so we'd have to find a motel we could afford....??????

Oh, how beautiful! I've heard the area around Banff and Lake Louise is amazing. Canada is a gorgeous country and I'd love to see more of it.

Very upper crust! Pretty to look at, and very manorish too. I'd love to see it up close, but I would definitely be stopped at the gate. LOL!

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
