Following the Potomac River Upstream from DC


Thanks for welcoming other contributions to your thread. Here are a few shots following the Maryland shore of the Potomac up-stream:

Seneca Road (14 miles from the DC line)

Seneca Aqueduct:

Lock-Keeper's House

McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area:

Edward's Ferry Road:

Edward's Ferry (now defunct, once the site of an active ferry service, factory, and strategic Civil War battle):

Five Mile dirt and gravel section of River Road from Edward's Ferry to White's Ferry:

White's Ferry (still an active ferry service between Poolsville, MD and Leesburg, VA):

High water markings:

Point of Rocks, MD:

I noticed I hit 1,000 miles on my new F800GS while waiting for a train:

Crossing into Virginia from Point of Rocks, MD:

Two miles later, crossing into West Virginia at the town of Harper's Ferry:

Accosted at gunpoint in Harper's Ferry:

The locals like the bike, though:

A final stop in Brunswick, MD heading home at sunset:

Hopefully others will post some decent riding areas nearby.

Best to All,
