That earlier entry's view of Harper's Ferry came from those rocks in the photograph below; you have to hike up above them and take a series of switchbacks down. My only two comments are that (1) the view is worth it and (2) I won't be taking any long distance hikes until this body is completely re-formed.

In the Middle of Life
I don't know what it is about a trail, but they all seem to be in the habit of calling, "Come on, come on!" My two-week vacation when all of my children are away at school isn't good for much beyond clearing out the house and grading papers ~ and following a compelling call to get outside. Hence, our little trip to Harper's Ferry. We stayed overnight at a modest but pleasant little resort outside Berkeley Springs, which is a fun and funky and artsy little town, and we had a fabulous meal overlooking the Blue Ridge at Panorama at the Peak. If you're within an hour or so of Washington, D.C. and you want a little week-end break, or just a wonderfully peaceful, elegant, and scrumptious dinner, follow all the links.
