Endless Source at the Casselman River

If you follow my work, you may notice that one place that shows up often in my work is the Casselman River Bridge. The river is a tributary of the Youghiogheny River. There is a lot of history surrounding the river and bridge.

The historic bridge was built in the early 1800s as part of the National Road and the area is now known formally as Casselman River Bridge State Park. This location is also known as Little Crossings. Located east of Grantsville near Spruce Forest Artisan Village, it’s a popular place with fly fisherman. Sightseers traveling along Route 40 often visit to take a look around.

Sailing Inspiration

Earlier this summer, I posted about sailing on Deep Creek Lake and inspiration for my sailboat painting. If you ever wanted to learn more about this group of ardent sailors, an excellent place to start is Ellen Tran’s weekly article in The Garrett County Republican. Ellen reports the weekly race and sailing activity, providing enough detail and photos to feel like you’re almost there. Her latest Sailing the Best View is a good one. Enjoy.
