As you ride the C & O route eastern out of Cumberland there is a nice park that has a canal boat on display. My bike is parked on the walkway behind the boat to provide a kind of size prespective. It was longer than I expected and pretty narrow but afrter seeing the size of the actual canl locks down the trail it all made a lot more sense.
This is a preserved section of the C & O canal and path looking west back into Cumberland.You can see that fountain that Ned and I posed with outside the visitors center in the distance under the overpass.
There were huge flocks of geese landing nearby in a water area I could not see but could hear a lot of goose noises going on.
This was a lucky shot because the camera I use is pretty simple and it took a few tries to figure out how to get the camera moving with the flock and keep it in focus.
