Hundreds of police and volunteers who spent Saturday trudging through ravines and woods in Patapsco Valley State Park failed to find any sign of a teenaged girl missing from the city since December, frustrating authorities who say they have run out of leads in the case. "We are now very much back at square one," said Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, echoing frustrations felt by people who spent 10 hours looking for Phylicia Barnes, the subject of one of the most extensive searches undertaken by police in years.

"Of all the things I'd like to do on New Year's Day, hiking is definitely top of my list," said Patrick, 48, as she prepared to set off in Patapsco Valley State Park in Ellicott City with her partner and brother.

There was no "misperception" about Patapsco Heritage Greenway. The Friends of Patapsco Valley and Heritage Greenway organization tried to create a Maryland Heritage Tourism Area by that name back in the 1990s. As I understand it, by 2000, numerous local environmental and community groups opposed the certification, Howard and Baltimore County withdrew support and the Sierra Club brought a lawsuit against it. After settling the lawsuit out of court, the Friends spent 13 years clearing trash and garlic mustard out of Patapsco Valley State Park.

Susquehanna State Park was a muddy mess. A heavy thunderstorm had brought a downpour to its trails, and Richard Smith had not brought the right pair of shoes for such a hike. It didn't help that it was still raining, if only lightly. The shoes he had on worked well enough, though, because Smith and his family navigated the trail without slipping and falling. Normally, they would not have bothered to go to the park on such a nasty day, but they had good reason: They were on a quest.

There's a reason people want to own or visit properties that back up to open spaces: Nature enhances lives. And that's why protecting and preserving the Patapsco Valley "is really all about quality of life," says John Slater, president of Patapsco Heritage Greenway, a 13-year-old organization dedicated to ensuring the valley's future. With an eye toward moving that mission forward, the group will host a public forum at 7 p.m. Monday. The event, "Envision the Valley," will be held at St. Augustine School in Elkridge and is a repeat of presentation of a consultant's final report given this week in Catonsville.
