I call it the "Deep Creek end of Winter Ride"!
43 miles West of Cumberland, and about an hours drive on old rt 40 and there you are.
Deep Creek Lake
is the largest inland body of water in the state of Maryland. It covers approximately 3,900 acres (16 km2
) and has 69 miles (111 km) of shoreline.
Like all lakes in Maryland, it is man-made.
The lake is home to a wide variety of freshwater fish and aquatic birds. The Wisp ski resort
is located nearby.
This resort is home to a thriving winter tourism industry and has expanded its offerings to include some summer activities as well. Fishing is extremely popular on the lake, for species such as largemouth bass
, smallmouth bass
, and walleye
. Recreational boating is popular in the summertime as well.
and the ride is always better with friends.
and the right ride makes all the difference!
and the view is the icing on the cake!
and every once and a while I actually get in the picture
