The Wolves Of West Virginia Part 2: The Missing Girl

My phonecall to the Shep­herd­stown police was singu­larly lacking in useful infor­ma­tion. They were polite but partic­u­larly unin­for­ma­tive about the missing Naomi. Ongoing inves­ti­ga­tion; pursuing a few leads; no comment.  Someone had just done a refresher course on how to deal with the press. Oh yes, I may have given them the impres­sion that I was a reporter of some sort.

Loudon Heights Overlook Panorama

Loudon Heights Overlook

Here's a different look at Harpers Ferry. This time round I hiked up Loudon Heights rather than Mary­land Heights.While the walk up Mary­land Heights is pretty much straight up (well round and round up I suppose) Loudon Heights is a bit more spread out. First you go up, then you walk along the spine of […]

Foggy Shenandoah

Foggy Shenandoah

The Appalachian trail runs through Harpers Ferry and crosses the Shenan­doah  River via a pedes­trian section of the road bridge.It's not a partic­u­larly pleasant walk what with the cars and trucks speeding by. But they have put up a barrier in between so you don't feel like you're about to be crushed the whole time.All of […]

The Potomac From Harpers Ferry

Sunrise On The Potomac

This is another spot that I photo­graph on a regular basis. This is where the Shenan­doah (on the right) and The Potomac (on the left) meet and the Potomac then heads through the Blue Ridge Moun­tains and on towards DC. It's also essen­tially where three states meet with Mary­land on the left across and Virginia […]
