GARRETT PARK - It's a century-old town that residents wish time would forget. Only one two-lane road runs in and out of tiny Garrett Park because the residents want it that way. There are no townhouses, the result of a public fight against them. And no home postal delivery. Residents pick up their mail daily at the post office because that's how they like it. All this despite its perch in the midst of Montgomery County's booming suburbs, not far from the Capital Beltway and bustling Rockville Pike and the nearest Bloomingdale's, which can be reached without going through a traffic light.

IT'S August. In Baltimore. How are you coping in our time of hazy, hot and humid weather? Find yourself sweating profusely every time you step outdoors? You've been to the pool. You've been to the beach. You've been to the waterpark. Heck, in your search for heavy-duty relief, you even ran through the sprinkler a few times. Yet the sweat drips on. May we suggest a visit to one of the area's waterfalls? Imagine. You're standing in a shallow pool while gallons of cool water cascade down from above.
