    This is the view I had this morning. It's the Shenandoah and in the distant background, it meets the Potomac. The church steeple is in Harper's Ferry. I'm visiting here this weekend.

    Eat at the restaurant up on the bluff. Or is that from where the pic is taken?
    Been a while since I was there. That bridge is new... Is it the railroad bridge?
    You can sit on Jeffersons thinking rock as well.

    I think Jefferson's Rock is right near that church steeple? Not sure.

    I'm upstream from where the Shenandoah meets the Potomac. The bridge is Rte. 340, and the direction it goes to the left is NW (then it goes W ater the bridge). The direction the camera is pointing is ENE (mostly E). Lots of bluffs here, but, yes, I am on a bluff.

    So pretty here. The air is clean, almost sweet smelling, and the night skies are lovely with little ambient light to drown out the stars.

    I'm still a city person, but this is nice to visit.

    Is it giving you a headache? :lol:

    I love city life.... but I'm happier living out in a rural area. I like the darkness of the night in rural areas. I like sitting outside and not hearing traffic and shit. Cities always seem so damned noisy. Can't you city people ever be quiet? :lol:

    :lmao:

    I need that noise to sleep. It drowns out those rude birds in the morning who want to wake me up, just like the little bastards did this morning.

    I used to live in Frederick, MD and would often go to Harper Ferry, WV. It was a pretty neat place. Used to get something cool to drink and sit back and watch all the tourists.

    It is a pretty neat place.

    BTW, Frederick's renovation of their town's center is amazing, so Frederick is pretty cool, now.

    Traffic around Detrick still sucks, though.
