An early start to beat the heat. The bridge crosses the Potomac and we enter Maryland.
Although flat, the 3 miles along the C&O canal path is kind of boring and terribly hot if done during the heat of the day…. A pretty view at sunrise at least.
This is the great looking Garvey shelter I stopped at for a quick snack break.
Mid morning was perfect timing for some trail Magic from Diane who lives nearby…fresh strawberries hit the spot! She has a son who lives in Denver and she has a 2nd home in Breck…small world!
The original Washington Monument
Views to the Valley floor.
Crossed over I-70 today…
23 hours and three turns by car I could be home with Andrea and Buddy !
