 The C&O Canal, a remnant of the early 19th century, is a narrow but long National Park that runs 184.5 miles along the north bank of the Potomac River.  It stretches from West Virginia to Washington D.C.  I ran up and down a few miles of its southern end in Georgetown, chasing this mule team and the possibility of a picture.

They may look slow, but mules can make pretty good time when you have to jump around back alleys and bridges to get ahead of them. Clearly this is a place to plan the shot for time of day and direction.  Maybe on the next trip to D.C…..
