Ready, Start, err… Go!

Well, so it begins. I rode over to Georgetown late this morning to scout out the start of the C&O Canal Towpath there. I also wanted to go to the Canal Mile “0” which is reportedly somewhat less than easy to find as it is off the Towpath proper. I found it just fine-


went there first, actually- and then spent a while sorting out the Towpath back through Georgetown, which in fact turned out to be the more challenging part. After being misled by a number of “C&O Canal this way” street signs


I finally got onto the Towpath up near the Key Bridge across the Potomac and so wound up heading east to its start point.


There was a huge mudbog I had to negotiate


and then a one block detour of which I was previously aware.


Once around those I reached the entrance sign.


I’m going to call this little section done so my start tomorrow will be back at the Key Bridge, this time headed in the right direction.
