Harper's Ferry National Historic Park, West Virginia Photography

This past weekend we spent two nights camping in Harper's Ferry, WV. I didn't take a ton of shots because I was trying to get a break from work but of course I took a few to share here on my blog. The Main Street in Harper's Ferry has a ton of old buildings to explore and quaint little artists shops. You can dine at little bistros overlooking the mountains and AT hikers can stop in town and stay at the hostel or one of the Bed & Breakfasts for a night. We grabbed a hand-dipped ice cream at the bottom of the hill and then headed up, exploring the little shops along the hill. On our way back to the campground, we stopped at the ruins of an old wood pulp mill to photograph. The second day, we took our daughter up to Jefferson Rock, overlooking the town. From there, you can see where the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers meet. There's also Harper's Cemetery on the hill behind Jefferson Rock and the ruins of the old St. Johns Church. Past Jefferson Rock is a clearly marked trail that was lined with buttercups and other flowers. I think it is part of the AT and follows along the steep mountainside. I definitely want to go back in the fall for the change of the leaves to take some more photos and hike a section of the AT.
