Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal

The Chesa­peake and Ohio Canal, usually referred to as the C&O Canal  runs paral­lel to the Potomac River from Cumber­land, Mary­land to Wash­ing­ton D.C. A length of around 184 miles. It oper­ated for almost 100 years (from 1831 to 1924). It is now main­tained as a National Histor­i­cal park and makes an excel­lent walking/running/cycling route.

This photo was taken oppo­site Harpers Ferry. The fog from my other photos is still cling­ing to the hill­side here.

Eoghann has often wondered if people read these little bio things we have to fill out everywhere on the internet and, assuming they do, why?
