Harpers Ferry WV

Last Friday we took a road trip to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.  It was a beautiful day to take a ride and it only took about an hour and 45 minutes from home!  We had fun checking out the national park and the surrounding town.  We'd love to go back sometime in the fall during peak foliage and also to do a bit of hiking.
What a beautiful drive!

Scott getting a little history lesson from Dad

Two cute little boys waiting for the shuttle bus

Great little bookshop where we purchased a national park passport and 2013 regional  stamps...Sean could have spent a lot of money in here!

Another lesson

The Potomac and Shenandoah rivers

My handsome guys

We walked across the railroad bridge....Scott was in heaven!

Some other day ;)

Our lunch spot

We waited for the Amtrak train to come by

Checking out the big Superliner coaches like the ones we'll be riding on in October when we take the Auto Train

Back in the day Sean would have been a tall guy, he just fit through the doorway of the tavern

Pointing out where we had walked

Patiently waiting for some grub

Me and my boys

Colin and his favorite foods...grilled cheese and French fries
