2014-11-09 - Balls Bluff Battlefield Park

~5 miles @ ~22 min/mi

With Mary Ewell leading, we take a fun run/hike/ramble around the trails and over the hills of Ball's Bluff Battlefield and National Cemetery in northern Virginia above the Potomac River. It's the third smallest national cemetery in the country, with 54 Union Army dead buried there, all but one unidentified. Afterwards, Mary introduces me to "Not Your Average Joe's" in Leesburg, an excellent restaurant.

Runkeeper plots the course, a tangle of loops that reflects occasional wrong turns we take among the polychromatic trail blazes. | http://zhurnaly.com/images/running/Balls_Bluff_Battlefield_Park_z.jpg |
