A Hot and Hilly Hike in Harpers Ferry

It was a little warm (it was the last day of summer, after all) and a bit steep (we were hiking uphill to an overlook, after all).  Nevertheless, seven students, Senor Torres and Dr. G completed (and enjoyed...mostly) a five mile hike from Harpers Ferry, WV, to the top of Maryland Heights that combined a bit of history, river play, and an uphill challenge.  All were rewarded with an excellent view, a great shared experience, the satisfaction of persistence, and some ice cream.   ~Dr. Garon
