November 2013 Monthly Travel Photo: Bridge over the Potomac at Harpers Ferry

Now a regional tourism destination and the half way point along the Appalachian Trail.  In the past the meeting of the two "wild" rivers of the Shenandoah and Potomac near the capital of the United States helped destine Harpers Ferry to being a flashpoint for Civil War.

This is one of my most favorite spots in the area. There's a great trail that goes to the top of the mountain above the railroad tunnel that offers wonderful views of Harper's ferry and the two rivers too.
