Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park

I went to see Watergate – yeah I  know, it’s a real downer, nothing to see there, but I had to go – and after that I walked next to the river and end up in this hideous mall thing, I then walk up Thomas Jefferson st. to get to M st. on My way up there I came across Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park, a canal and towpath trail that extends from Georgetown, D.C.  to Cumberland, Maryland, a distance of 184.5 miles (296.9 km), and which in the period of 1831 – 1924 was used to transport coal from the Allegheny Mountains to Washington D.C.
I decided to walk along the canal and explorer it for a while and then walk the rest of the way to M st. further down the path.
