#4 Visit Harpers Ferry

Mary Ann and I took a day trip to Harpers Ferry National Park on March 7, 2016.

Harpers Ferry is a National Park in West Virginia that became famous before and during the American Civil War.  The town is located at the junction of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, separating Maryland, Virginia, and now West Virginia.  Leading up to the Civil War John Brown made his famous raid of the Federal armory (which manufactured muskets).

It was a great day again – very warm for March, but very comfortable.  And it was a Monday.  Nice warm weather and no crowds (Monday).  We hiked from Harpers Ferry along the Appalachian Trail into Virginia for a couple miles and back.
