It wasnt the normal classroom setting for Patrick Cullinan. Patrick, 17, recently cycled along the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath.
To be able to ride along having a great time, but still learning about the geology andenvironmental aspects of the trail was kind of cool, the Fox Chapel Area HighSchool junior said.
Patrick and six classmates traversed the 184.5-mile towpath May 6-9 with a couple of teachers andparents. The trail, which connects Cumberland, Md., and Washington,DC, runs along the north side of the Potomac River.
