Frederick is located in Frederick County in the western part of the State of Maryland. The city has served as a major crossroads since colonial times.

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.

1998 photos: Image quality isn't going to be very good because these are scans of prints. In 1998 I was using a Pentax ME Super SLR camera. This was way before I went digital so the images you see on this site were manually scanned from the original prints, some 4x6 and some 5x7. Most of my vacations this year were Civil War sites but I also did a nice work-related trip to Ontario and New Orleans. No trips out west this year!
