Upper Potomac

A river lunch in the winding hills on the Upper Potomac.

The long settled river valley is less known for its natural aesthetic than its locomotion.  It is a thread of human transportation with a railroad, state highway, carriage path-turned-bike path and canal all seen while paddling a boat.  During a 10 day expedition for Outward Bound a co instructor and I lead a group of 13 year old kids down the river and taught them the meaning of life.

Taking a trip to Maine with the grandfather, I think I am snagging a kayak while I am going up. We need to paddle once this summer together.
