Bluebells Along the C+O Canal
The bride and I took a bike ride on Tuesday along the C+O Canal upstream of Williamsport, MD. Ultrarunners will no doubt be aware that the C+O hosts a portion (26 miles) of the venerable JFK 50 Miler, held in November each year. The JFK stretch is downstream of Williamsport, and the finish line is in the small town.
Anyway....Williamsport is at Mile 99.5 of the canal; upstream between Mile 103 and 104 is a great display of Virginia Bluebells:

These guys bloom in early May each year, and it's a sight well worth seeing.
