Great Day for Great Falls

ImageThe first day of Winter gave us a high of a 70 degrees so Greg and I decided to have a picnic and explore the trails at Great Falls Park in McLean, VA. A lot of other people seemed to have had the same idea as us, but the park is so large it didn’t matter. There’s no shortage of picnic tables and grills for your enjoyment, but keep in mind that you do have to pack your trash out. After a trip back to the car to drop our picnic remnants off, we headed out along the trail to see the water. ImageGreat Falls is perfect for the day where you want to get outside and enjoy nature, but don’t want to work too hard. The trails are exactly the opposite of strenuous. Everything is clearly marked and there are tons of overlooks to see the rushing water. Some overly ambitious people were kayaking, rock climbing, and even stand up paddle boarding. We chose to have a photo shoot instead.ImageImage All in all, it was a great day for Great Falls! Now if only this beautiful weather would stay…
