Each morning, like the boss disbursing the coffee klatsch, we seem to scatter some animals off the trail. Leaving Harpers Ferry, a flock of little brown birds fluttered around us as we crossed the bridge. Outside of Hancock, deer fled off the rail trail. Cumberland featured trail side bunnies, and today chipmunks scurried from our wheels. As we head into more urban environments, these little thrills will just be pleasant memories.
