Great Falls Park
Summer invites us to escape the heat and enjoy our beautiful natural falls, lakes, oceans beauty of Creation as well as discover our natural resources and support our national landmarks. One of our favorite places is the incredible Great Falls & Mater Gorge in Virginia. It is amazing to photograph and always something spectacular to see whether it is the falls and their ever-changing colors, the backdrop of the sky and the reflections of the sun on the water and rocks, watching people as the climb or better yet, as they kayak the falls. A wonderful place for a romantic or family outing. Come and see and bring your camera!
“At Great Falls, the Potomac River builds up speed and force as it falls over a series of steep, jagged rocks and flows through the narrow Mather Gorge. The Patowmack Canal offers a glimpse into the early history of this country. Great Falls Park has many opportunities to explore history and nature, all in a beautiful 800-acre park only 15 miles from the Nation’s Capital.
