Great Falls on the Potomac River is is located in the Mather Gorge, approximately 14 miles up river from Washington, DC. The falls consists of a series of waterfalls dropping a total of about 75 feet. This area is known as the the steepest fall line rapids of any river in the eastern United States.
We went early in the morning to avoid the crowds. The website said the park fills up on nice weekend afternoons. By the time we left, several more people had shown up.
There were vultures, cranes and Osprys near the falls. Supposedly there are eagles too but we didn't see any.
|They were looking at us, looking at them!!!! These people were on the Maryland side. Looks like people show up on that side much earlier. We had one guy taking pictures, then a lady meditating. Nice and peaceful...|
|Seems this is a great place to meditate...|
