Great Falls

Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Park - Potomac, MD

January 6th, 2007 was an unseasonably beautiful day in the Nation's Capitol. 70 degrees with hardly a cloud in the sky. Put down the remote, disconnect the internet and head for the great outdoors !

 The Maryland side of Great Falls is part of the C&O Canal National Park, and offers overlooks of the 'great' falls and several lesser ones.

Hard to believe it's less than two miles to the Capital Beltway

Funny things can be found on the rocks
