Billy Goat Trail

This Thanksgiving weekend, Mark found us a great trail to hike.  It's in the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park.  (Pfew!  That's a mouthful!)  The park contains the old canal and locks that used to get boat traffic up and down past the rough parts of the Potomac River.

The terrain is rocky, and you can see why there had to be a better way for boats to get by.







The day was cold, but beautiful.  The kids didn't have time to get get tired, because the rock scrambling was so fun.  We went on Billy Goat Trail A, then back along the canal.  There are two other parts too I'd love to try sometime.
