Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. To see many, many more outdoor photos or to post some of your own, please visit her blog.
These are a few photos we took a couple of years ago, on a visit to Great Falls Park in McLean, Virginia. The park overlooks the Great Falls of the Potomac River, with Virginia on one side and Maryland on the other. And the views can be pretty spectacular. (Click on photos to enlarge.)
The park has several overlooks along the hiking trail. At least one of the overlooks and part of the trail are wheelchair accessible.
They're a little hard to see against the foam here, but the herons in this shot were enjoying a little wade in the water.
Lunch break high above the river. I think the park rangers would probably frown on this.
If you enlarge this one, you can just make out some fishermen at the bottom center of the shot. Again, I'm not sure this is really allowed - I know swimming is a no-no.
