Harper's Ferry Update
I have been seeing a lot of deer lately. I only really see the tail end of them as they are running away. I did see a young buck today too.
Although technically I am still in Maryland, I am about 1 mile from West Virginia. After that I will have 4 states left with Virginia being the longest of all the states. In the end, I am glad to be out of Pennsylvania which is the home of the rocks. The trail was littered with rocks, all very pointy and sometimes they would move when stepped on. It was very annoying and painful to hike over as there really was no way to avoid them. Today I passed near Antietam, site of the largest mass deaths on the battle field in one day in American history. I had to ask someone about this as it really meant nothing to me. But I did pass through Washington monument park and read about the life of George Washington. Since I am walking the trail "backwards" according to everyone, the history was from his death to his birth. Made for interesting reading. Oh Well.
