Great Falls

My BIL was visiting last weekend and so on Sunday, which was warm but not in the heatastrophe zone yet, we went for a visit to Great Falls on the Potomac River.  We were on the side with the C+O Canal and just as we approached there was a boat rising in a lock.  I love how simple and effective some of the old tech stuff is.

We took the tow path to the bridge to Olmstead Island.  Although the goal was to get to see the falls, the way there was pretty stunning. 

Some  wildlife of the natural kind …

and of the very adventurous kind …

and finally the falls!

A good trip!
