Mile 156.7 - Of all the weirs along the C & O's 184 miles, this is
the King of Waste Weirs. The picture doesn't do it justice because there's
not enough sense of scale in it. A very tall man could stand in those openings
with a foot or two of headroom still left.
The other side of this weir has a large stone tunnel where the flood of water drops
from dizzying heights to the river.
