a little trip to great falls park

Great Falls Park 13Nov2010
The weather was SPECTACULAR!

We were heading into DC, to the zoo, but opted to take Anna to Great Falls Park - a mere 10-minute drive from home - at the last minute.

I have been to the park more than a dozen times, but today, we climbed down jagged rocks and enjoyed peace near the water, away from the crowd.

The air was crisp. The scenery was pretty. The sun was warm. It was a great day to be out...and to forget about the house chores for a while.

  2. Such a beautiful spot and so close to home!

    I bet the summer crowds and the bike riders are a little much, specially with the little one - and that warm late autumn sunshine feels extra good.

  3. This was probably the last warm weekend of the year, just glad we made good use of it. Definitely glad we didn't trek all the way into the city for the zoo. Granted, for a free zoo, DC's isn't too bad, but getting in and out, that's another story.

    All in all, it was good to be out climbing on rocks in flip-flops with a baby strapped to my chest. The little family had fun and Anna saw so much that she fell asleep on the hike back.
