It’s cold and rainy in DC today, but the weather was fabulous this weekend when Nick and I went hiking in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.
Fact #1: Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia all meet in Harpers Ferry, so you could technically be in three states at once! Although I think it’s technically in the river, so you may get a little wet.
Fact #2: Harpers Ferry played a role in the Civil War and it changed eight times between the North and the South (that one is for you, Dad!).
Fact #3: The Appalachian Trail passes right through the town of Harpers Ferry.
And that’s it for your history lesson. Let’s see some lovely fall foliage, shall we?
I had to sport some Tennessee orange even though the game didn’t quite turn out in our favor.
We hiked about 6 miles and everyone kept commenting on Roxie being with us. One lady said, “what an enthusiastic little dog!” What can I say? She’s one tough little Yorkie.
Stay dry ya’ll!
