Following the Potomac River Upstream from DC

Matt,

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,
