A cold April Morning

Last night I camped at this location. I found a limited pair of trees to suspend my hammock from. There are 5 Over Night camp sites and 1 daily use location.

Yes, it was Delightful to see the sun set over the Potomac and rise the next morning over the opposite shore. The fellow campers were pleasant to share the other sites with. I was happy to share my camp saw with my fellow traveler to cut wood for the fire.

Please note this is a pack out your own garbage camp site. There are NOT garbage cans and other less than courteous campers left behind some trash. Please also be aware of the Canadian Geese their droppings and EVERY WHERE (it is the wilderness). The wild Turkeys on the Virginia shore line, were pleasant to wake up to. There is NO hook ups (water or electric) .

The early morning was particularly cold due to Winter sticking around until LATE APRIL. It was only a few degrees above freezing (during the night/morning) and being in a hammock………

If you do choose this location to camp please, PACK OUT YOUR TRASH.
