Where the Shenandoah River meets the Potomac River

This week’s photo challenge reminded me of a trip to Harpers Ferry National Historic Park in Virginia. My husband and I went to see the rock where Thomas Jefferson stood and declared that the scene he was looking at  “is worth a voyage across the Atlantic”. He was referring to the point where the Shenandoah River transitions into the Potomac River.Standing there, gazing at the same view, I think, I agree with him. 🙂

    Somehow I’ve never been to Harper’s Ferry, but I love the Shenandoah Valley. Thanks for the look!

    For many years we had a cabin 5 miles up river. On Friday night I enjoyed listening to the beach traffic jam reports as we drove up from D.C. feeling smug.
