Antietam Creek in Maryland

Trip Overview

A 60 degree day in January? You bet my butt I was doing some water somewhere.

Somewhere ended up being Antietam Creek. Recent rain storms had swollen the normally low creek, and given me a chance at some cool class 2- rapids.

I did about 12 miles just over 2 hours. I dropped in at Mitcy's and got out at Keedysville Rd. The whole time, I never saw a single person. The solitude was nice.
