Yesterday my hubby whisked me away to a place I been wanting to visit for awhile! We went to Harper’s Ferry in West Virginia. Record breaking warm temps helped to make it a wonderful day to be outdoors hiking with the love of my life. We celebrate our 20th anniversary on Wednesday, so this was a Pre-Anniversary getaway 🙂 We WALKED a lot and my legs feel it, BUT it was worth it Thought I would share some pics with you all, in time my pics will be ready to share, but for now I am borrowing from the great site of Pinterest 🙂 This church was built in 1830!
We visited the Wax Museum, the detail of the 88 Wax figurines describing the history of John Brown, how he tried to free the slaves, but ended up being sentenced to death. Harpers Ferry is a Historical, quaint town with OLD buildings and unique shops. It is nestled in between the beauty of the river and mountains around it. You can start hiking the Appalachian trail from there. We turned in the direction of the sign that said Maine. We only had 1600 miles to go to reach Maine the sign said. We pondered it and decided we may wait for another day to attempt that 🙂 Was a lovely day of just being leisurely and enjoying our surroundings. If you ever happen to be close to the area, I encourage you to visit, you won’t be disappointed.
This is Jefferson’s Rock. He had made a comment when in Harpers Ferry that this was the place for the best view and so it became name
Hope you enjoyed this little photo trip!
