....... the Potomac and all it's tribs. were pretty swollen up . We went up to Mouth of Monocacy just to have a look ... gage was 24'+ at Frederick which relates to a new river wide log jam dam at the aqueduct . This one is noticably larger than last spring's (which they did get removed and cleared up before this new 2011 one got made) .
The water was right up to the very top of the arches at the aqueduct and still rising (about 3" an hr.) when we left ... I'll try to send ya pic. or two .
We took a walk on down to the power plant by the tow path , then after spending a little time back at the aqueduct , drove on over to Sugar Loaf and hiked up to the summit (green trail) ... the green trail (from the parking lot) is a 360' accent in a 1/4 mi. ... the steepest part is the last 200' of accent in about the final 500' of that 1/4 mi. ... nice how they make is so easy on you with the way they built the green trail path !! ... you ever go up to Sugar Loaf's summit ??
