Early Morning Fog

Driving to work yesterday morning I passed Three Lakes in Richland.  The sun was just up into the clouds a bit and there was some nice color, so I had to stop and see what there was to see.

Couldn’t tell what kind of bird this was, but I liked […]

Great Falls Park along the Potomac

I had business in Potomac, MD, last week and took the opportunity to visit Great Falls Park on both the VA and MD sides.  I had no idea that these falls/rapids were there on the Potomac just above Washington, DC. Now I know why they built the C&O Canal along the river. I highly recommend a visit to the parks on both sides of the […]
