Harpers Ferry


“The hardest thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which to burn” - David Russell

NOTE: Headed to Maine to finish my Appalachian Trail Thru Hike.  I have prepared a number of blogs and scheduled them to post while I am on the trail.  Thanks for following and I will be back soon.

Theme: Bridges
Located at the confluence of the Potomac River and the Shenandoah River is the historical town of Harper's Ferry.  Much of it's history, both good and bad, is due to the two rivers it borders. From the bridges being burned during the Civil War to the floods it has encountered, Harper's Ferry remains an icon in American Civilization proving that obstacles can be overcome by determination.

Humor for today - There are 4 guys in a car, 1 from Iowa,1 from Wisconsin, 1 from Florida, and 1 from Illinois. The guy from Florida says "I'm tired of seeing oranges everyday" so he throws some oranges out the window. So then the guy from Iowa says "I'm tired of seeing Corn everyday" so he throws some corn out the window. The guy from Wisconsin is very inspired so he opens the door and pushs the guy from Illinois out of the car!
