I often find myself heading away from the deluge of modern suburbia in MD to spend some quiet time at Rocks State Park. Rocks is a small area, with only a dozen or two dozen boulder problems. It has a few really, really good lines on good rock. Rocks is also home to the King and Queen seat, a beautiful formation at the top of the mountain that hosts several traditional climbs along with a stunning view.
Now that the days are short and the weather is conducting its annual dance from fall to winter, finding time to get outside during the week can be a challenge. I am blessed to have an escape so close to my front door.
