The Next Chapter: Harpers Ferry, WV


In May 2019, I finally realized a long-held dream of mine of moving to a mountain town, in this case Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.

There’s an abundance of fantastic trails with plenty of vert. The Appalachian Trail runs past our front door. We love it here!

I’m going to keep a basic log of outdoor activities here, although all the boring details like pace, splits, elevation etc. are kept on Strava.
