Because of my wrist injury back in June, I was unable to ride my bike all summer. But that ended today as I trucked it out to Harpers Ferry National Park and spent a couple of hours enjoying the beautiful Fall weather along the river.
Riding through the old town past the railroad station, I came to a gate that blocked a road that once was. The road used to run along the Potomac River on the south shore between the remains of a small canal and the B&O Railroad tracks. Since the road was closed a few years ago, nature has reclaimed much of it and what's left resembles a wide path through the woods that's just perfect for hiking and bicycling.
Riding out to the remains of an old dam, I stopped to just take in the river and the cool, crisp air.
