C&O Canal

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.
