We hiked along a river that runs through three states and one District.
It extends 383 miles from the Appalachian Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay and starts way up high in the mountains.
This river is the home to many many birds.
Both the great blue heron and the bald eagle live here.
The river has had a long relationship with man as well. People lived along it shores 15,000 years ago.
During the American Civil War (1861–1865), the river traced the border between the Union and the Confederacy. It WAS the line that divided the country.
People pull their canoes and kayaks out as they reach the gorge. It is too dangerous to go on in some places.
For those who take the land the hiking along the shoreline is sometimes easy and sometimes difficult, But it is also beautiful this time of year.
