Harpers Ferry W.V.

Do you have a favorite sound? Have you ever given it any thought if you had a favorite sound? One my favorite sounds are train whistles. It reminds me of growing up by the tracks. We always lived 'on the other side of the tracks'! These tracks led into a mounain tunnel from Harpers Ferry W. V. to Maryland Heights. What sights!

Cruisin down the river on a Sunday afternoon... Oops it was Saturday but the song didn't fit. There were hundreds of rafters floating down the Shenadoah and Potamac Rivers. Our favorite floaters were the groups with a raft just for their cooler. What a way to spend a Summer day.
Hey up there! There brave climbers scaled the mountain. What a workout that would be. Just watching them made my knees hurt. Brave souls!

  1. Great post! Love your shots! I love trains and their whistles, too. Beautiful!

    Have a great week!


  2. I remember going to Harpers Ferry as a kid. I love the bridge shot and the sound of train whistles, too.

  3. Love train whistles, but you don't hear them much anymore. Also seagulls - means you're by the seaside.
    Great photos.

  4. Three excellent photos of a beautiful country! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Harpers Ferry and West Virginia---as they say it is wild and wonderful. I love train whistles too. I like the calls of the birds in the spring and early summer when they are mating. I like the sound of the oven buzzer when the food is done. I love the sound of a new baby making noises in their sleep. I love the sound of rain in the desert. Well, I guess you inspired me to think of sounds and I got a little crazy. LOL!

  6. Thanks for taking me to Harper's Ferry, have never been before.
    I like the sound of the wind in the Aspen and the ever changing babble of a creek.
    Thanks for reminding us to listen.

  7. I empathize with the train whistle, it is such alonesome yet promising sound. Great tunnel.... I stil remember getting coal dust in my eyes, especially going into the tunnel. Nice post.


Thanks for your visit!
Hope you are blessed in some way today!
