Great Falls in Rampant Flood

Category: Travel

Great Falls – the gorge of the Potomac just north of Washington, DC – is a spectacular natural wonder that feels like it should be in the west somewhere; it just doesn’t seem like the northeast corridor should house such majesty.  Of course, anyone who lives in the region knows that there are all kinds of natural gems hidden away amongst the superhighways that wind around them like strangler figs in a grove of trees.

When it rained and I had some free time (and a visitor!) I wanted to show it off in its flood stage, so I took Rachel to see it.  It was a roiling, foaming, roaring, ground-shaking, rainbow-generating cataract.
