C&O-GAP Points of Interest

I sorted my photos from the C&O and GAP ride into various categories that I have been posting the past few days. This collection is a mish-mosh of the rest of my photos.

Lunch stop in Shepardstown WV: Climbed a pretty steep path up from the towpath and crossed over a river on a highway bridge into Shepardstown.

Lunch stop in Frostburg, MD: Climbed an even steeper path and road into town The path was decorated with some interesting cycling art works.

Leaving Cumberland and starting the GAP was a 26 mile 1.75% grade slow but easy climb to the Eastern Continental Divide. The divide was crowded with many cyclists and their cameras. East of the divide water flows to the Chesapeake Bay and west of the divide water flows to the Gulf of Mexico. We had some rain that day and some beautiful views into the surrounding area.

Along the GAP we came to an interesting formation, a Tufa.

On our last day of riding, leaving Connellsville, near the Youghiogheny River, we came upon the Dravo Cemetery. Once lost and forgotten, it has be refurbished. Dravo is a popular site for cyclists and hikers due to the nice pavilion and washrooms

Finally some interesting rock formations with red rocks and flowing water.
