Day 202 - Araby Church Road

On my way to Urbana to teach the photography courses for kids this morning, I parked at the Araby United Methodist Church on Araby Church Road to do my walk.  I've been on this road a number of times on my way to Worthington and Thomas Farms, both of which are part of the Monocacy Battlefield, but I had never stopped at the church to take a look at the Civil War monuments that are along the road.

I walked from the church down to the drive leading to Thomas Farm, and along past the cows grazing in the field.  I was surprised at how much traffic was on Araby Church Road on a Saturday morning, with the majority of the cars going north.

The weather was nice, and spring is in the air, despite the forecast for snow on Monday.  It was a short walk, but it will be a long day, so perhaps it will all balance out.


Visit my photography show, "My Maryland," at the public library in Urbana, Maryland, on the lower level of the building.  It is there until the end of April.
