I crossed from West Virginia into Maryland this morning. Around noon I popped out of the woods at Turners Gap on US Alt. 40 and saw this really cool retro Smokey the Bear sign announcing that the fire danger for today is ‘Low’. I got my phone out to take a photo and noticed the building in the background. It looked really familiar – some of you will recognize it too. I thought about it for a minute and realized that it is the restaurant where my cousin, Sean, and his wife, Amanda, had their rehearsal dinner several years ago. The name of the restaurant is The Old South Mountain Inn and it is in Boonsboro, MD.
Here’s a photo of the restaurant and the Smokey the Bear sign.
