Great Falls with Mom

Parent came to visit us in NoVA after Florida, so I took Mom out for a hike around the Billy Goat Trail at Great Falls (Maryland side). With the river swollen from the previous week’s heavy rain, the falls raged higher than I had ever seen them before, and Sec. A of the trail was closed due to flooding. Sec. B was still open, though, and proved just as fun and challenging.

We also spotted this rough green snake on the trail during the walk back.

It was great having my parents over for a weekend. Mom’s fitter than I am.
