IT WOULD BE HARD TO OVER-STATE HOW BEAUTIFUL THIS PART of the country is in spring. The Maryland section of the A T goes through some of the most beautiful, historic and interesting parts of our country. A great deal of the Civil War was fought here (from Antietam up to Gettysburg just north of Frederick) with huge casualties and untold sufferings on both sides. Above, I hiked the A T from the Potomac River near Harper's Ferry up to Weverton Cliff where the views were stunning and looked out over three states.
