The first few pics were taken in the orthodox Jewish community in the Pikesville area during Succos.  
Spent most of the day in and around Rocks State Park. The King and Queen Seat is a natural 190-foot rock outcrop that overlooks Deer Creek Valley. During the 17th Century, the Susquehannock Native Americans lived in three settlements along Deer Creek. They used the King and Queen Seat at the Rocks as a site for ceremonial gatherings. Bald Eagel, who was the chief of the Tribes, and his wife, took took their places on the King and Queen Seat and the braves gathered on the rocks and ground below to listen.
