In the woods outside Ellicott City, high above the Patapsco river, one may find the remains of a seminary where diabolists allegedly hold their revels. That's where I went today. I may devote a Sunday column to this epic investigation -- but the short version is that I found no evidence of Satan's minions at work. There is nothing there beyond the very scenic remains of a demolished seminary.
And lots of stairs. LOTS.
And a deer leg.
At the time, I didn't think much of the find, but now it seems odd. Why just the leg? Why no sign of the rest of the carcass?
Perhaps more experienced hikers can explain the mechanism of such an event....
