Potomac Panorama

Potomac Panorama

On the Mary­land side of the Potomac you can walk from Harpers Ferry all the way up to Shep­herd­stown or further cour­tesy of the C&O Canal. On the West Virginia side things are a little more limited. But you can walk along the river a way. Which is what I did here, walking until I reached an old rubble dam … Read More…

Cunningham Falls

Cunningham Falls State Park is a park in Mary­land near Thur­mont (a little to the south of Gettys­burg). It's a nice park with a lake and very pleasant for a day out and a picnic. It takes it's name from a 78 foot cascading water­fall (appar­ently the largest cascading water­fall in Mary­land). My photo shows the base of the waterfall
