Here is a sampling of the pictures that I took in Ellicott City. Note the sheet plastic and straw barrier, which was apparently built to protect the river from coal contamination. Several of the coal cars tipped over on the bridge, and dumped out their contents. Hopefully I can post more of the pictures later.
I love the bicycle ride to from Baltimore City to Ellicott City, and will likely be visiting again soon. This site is very close to Patapsco State Park, which is a great place for bike riding.
