West Virginia gone

This is a brief post as was our time in West Virginia. We followed the Potomac to Paw Paw, formerly a union fort during the Civil War, erected to protect the Chesapeake Ohio Canal, which only operated for 75 years before the railroads made it obsolete. We biked miles on the canal tow road with its locks and brickwork and witnessed the 3000+ft. tunnel paid for with the health and lives of immigrant people.
We followed the Cacapon River through a corner of the state, following the ridges and hollows into Virginia as the dry leaves were falling, floating and crunching around us.
