My home is in a neighborhood that is surrounded on three sides by a national park, and this time of the year, it looks like it's on fire.  The park is set along Rock Creek, which runs from Georgetown to Gaithersburg, Maryland.  There are riding trails for bicycles and horses, tennis courts and lo...

When I drive to my office at Evers and Company, the route takes me through a national park, and last week, the drive was spectacular.  On the day after our last snow (and I do hope it's the last of the season), the sky was a bright blue and the sun was illuminating the ice that was clinging to t...
