I started my half-thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Since Jo's train was delayed a full day, I walked around town and hiked up to Maryland Heights (part of Elk Ridge), which overlooks the town.

I went for a hike across the rivers and up to Maryland Heights, northeast of town.
