Saturday Sareenity - Scenes From Harpers Ferry III


The view from Jefferson Rock

Jefferson Rock is several large masses of shale rock piled one upon the other that overlook the
Shenandoah River just prior to its confulence with the Potomac River. The name of this landmark
derives from Thomas Jefferson, who stood there on October 25, 1783. He found the view from the rock impressive and wrote that "this scene is worth a voyage across the Atlantic".

Linking to Saturday Sareenity and Weekly Top Shot


Ozzy Saturday will now be moved to Ozzy Sunday!

  6. Old Jefferson might be a little guilty of hyperbole, but it certainly is a beautiful view! Thanks for sharing this as it confirms once again that we have many exquisite sites in this country that are worth a look...unfortunately, I've missed a bunch of them!
