A Heavenly View in Western Maryland

web grand view

Several years ago on the way to Deep Creek Lake in  Garrett County in Western Maryland,  I made a brief  stop at the Route 219 overlook.  The view is expansive and the lighting is dynamic  so you can always get a different look.  (please see more photos and text below.)

On this particular morning, the weather forecast said a storm was on its way into town. As I got out of my car to get my gear, I looked to my left and saw what resembled the light from Heaven dropping from the sky over the horizon and the  numerous farms below me. It was quite a grand view.

While Garrett County is best known for Deep Creek Lake and the WISP resort that offers four season activity, you will find another treasure trove of photo opportunities in Garrett County’s country roads and rolling farmland.

Many of the farms in the county invite visitors to tour their grounds.

The 219 Overlook is located at such an elevation that at times you feel as if you are taking aerial photographs.

T0 view some other of my posts that feature photos taken from this same scenic view pull off, please visit Panorama-mamnia and Garrett County Farm Scene.

Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful day, Rob

  1. I’m a Western Pennsylvanian who went to college at Frostburg State. Travelled through this area many times and have experienced its great beauty and changeable weather. Lovely photos.


  2. My favourite is the black & white one. As you side, seems like light from Heaven dropping from the sky over the numerous farms.
