More Photos of Potomac River Crossing

Yesterday's post focused on the American Civil War angle of recreating Confederate General A. P. Hill's famous forced march to save the day at Antietam.  That route involved me fording the Potomac River as Hill's men did some 150 years ago.

I also took some natural history shots to contrast with the death and destruction.  I love history, but I love nature more.

As you can see, the Potomac River is clean and healthy.

Underwater grasses...tons of them!

The riverbed holds a nice population of clams
