Touring with the family – photo gallery

Photos by Kevin Brooker and his family’s ride from Pittsburgh to Washington D.C. along the Great Allegheny Passage and the C&O Canal towpath. Read his write-up in Bicycle Times Issue #13.

Trail head in Boston, PA, at the beginning of the ride.

Leaving the town of Connellsville, PA. Seeing the distance to DC as a number was sobering.

Typical view along the GAP trail. Well maintained and fun to ride.

Youghiogheny River in Confluence, PA.

The Divide is the highpoint of the trail. From here it is a 24 mile downhill run to Cumberland, MD.

Entering the Borden Tunnel.

Typical canal lock. There are 72 of them along the C&O. The white building on the right is where the lock keepers lived.

First day on the Towpath.

Riding into Oldtown, MD

Getting ready to enter the Paw-Paw tunnel along the C&O.
