Great Falls Park

Leaving the Charmed City behind we made our way towards the Capital with some nature viewing on the way.


Great Falls Park is a small National Service Park along the banks of the Potomac River. We stopped here just to take a look from the three overlooks though there was an abundance of activities to partake in. Kayaking, fishing, camping, picnicking just to name a few.



Three beautiful overlooks, two pretty simple to walk to the first a bit rocky. Which was not a problem for us just made tossing D around a bit more dangerous..


The only negative was the long wait to get in. I head read about it online but I still didn't understand why we had needed to wait for almost an hour to get into the park.. It didn't seem that full once we got in.. 

Next stop DC.

    1. well the trip has already been taken.. I am posting as I sort through the photographs and get my thoughts together..
      We didn't take a tour bus, this wasn't our first time visiting.. so we skipped what we had already seen and did a few new things too.

      Thanks for commenting :)

  3. Hi, Hena! Thanks a lot for dropping by! ;) I replied your comment, but after I clicked "send" I realized it was a non-reply address, haha. Anyway, just wanted to tell you that I got the box from Franck de Las Mercedes who is behind The Priority Boxes Art Project to promote peace. He sends a painted box to all the people who ask for one and to any part in the world for free! You can ask for one in the link I included in my blog. He's a totally humble and cool ;).

    Hope you get yours, too, if you decide to order one! ;)

    Last but not least, this place in the photos look amazing! :D

    Have a great day!

    Miki.

  5. I love visiting and/or sitting by waterfalls. I think it's my equivalent to people who love sitting on the beach.

    It's good you found something nice to do after your disappointing time in Baltimore.

  10. It looks so peaceful. I was surprised to read that it took a hour just to get in, I guess it's the place to be.
