A Great Hike Through Great Falls

Yesterday, we were looking for a kid friendly hike in the area and decided we'd give Great Falls a try. It turned out to be the perfect destination. We started off with a view of the falls, which was truly outstanding. I hadn't been back to great falls in years and years - heck I may have never been to this section. It was truly magnificent. It's not exactly Niagra Falls, but definitely worth taking visitors to see.

We then did a 1 mile walk along the river trail, followed by a 1 mile walk along the towpath back to our car. It was level and the terrain was smooth. But, you had the river next to you to add to the scenery.

Here's a few of the hundreds of photos I snapped yesterday. The falls were so picturesque, yet I felt like I didn't capture them well. I'm going to have to grab my photo buddy Greg and spend some real time trying to capture the falls.

(By the way, the last two photos, and the one with me carrying the backpack, were all taken by Shira. She's quite the photographer herself!)

  1. Twenty-one years ago, I slipped over the rail here one evening and proposed to my girlfriend here by moonlight.

    It's nice in the daylight too.
