#236 Great Falls Park

Always a special day in this house, 9/4 was celebrated this year with a trip to Great Falls Park.

The Great Falls of the Potomac are a spectacular natural landmark near Washington D.C. managed by the National Park Service. Here in northern Virginia, the Potomac River builds up speed over a series of steep, jagged rocks and flows through the narrow Mather Gorge, producing the steepest fall line rapids of any eastern river.  Lovely.

Yours in admiring the Potomac up close,
