The fog began to increase in intensity as we approached the parking lot at Carderock next to the Potomac river and the C&O canal. The temperature was below freezing as we bundled up and stepped out of the car and on to the trail. The sun began to rise into the sky through the trees behind us as we started our walk at a brisk pace, trying to get rid of the cold in our extremities. The fog began to lift slowly, creating a unique and somewhat surreal lighting over the still waters and in-between the trees. There was some kind of magic happening!
The sky had completely cleared up by the time we finished our walk and returned to the parking lot a couple of hours later.
