This Spring I had the honor of discovering an new local attraction that I never new existed.  A friend heard about a Dam and Azalea Garden near Columbia, Maryland and we decided to check it out.  I have to say that it is a beautiful area and the Dam itself offers a nice habitat for geese and some other wild life to enjoy.  Fishermen can go there, although I do want to put out the reminder that this is an area shared by other people and other species, so please clean up after yourself and don’t leave fishing lines out where it can harm other wild life!

 

 

First we saw the beautiful picnic area down by the dam and then we went and walked around the Azalea Garden, which has Azaleas in many different colors and several different sizes.  It was fun to walk around, get some fresh air, and see and photograph these beautiful flowers and the local wildlife.  Definitely keeping this place in mind for next year to visit again!

 

 

 

Of note, there are also beautiful Dogwood trees in the Azalea Garden.  There is fun to be had here by people of all ages and even the family pet can go and have fun.  There is picnic tables, and even a pavilion for special events.
