West Virginia

Spent 4 nights at a campground in Harpers Ferry, WV.  

Setting up camp

Including the big tent!

There were some useful amenities at this campground including free pancakes each day (if you were wearing your yellow armband), a nice dishwashing station, and an off-leash dog play area!

A couple of days were spent in town and in some of the historic areas.  Also enjoyed some short hikes on the AT which comes right into town, crossing both the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers here.

These steps are part of the AT right in town.

Looking across the Potomac to Maryland. This pedestrian bridge is also part of the AT and links Harpers Ferry to the C & O towpath trail.

A couple taking pictures along the AT, and, yes, he’s wearing a kilt.

Church along the AT in town.

My hiking buddies!
