Visiting Great Falls in December 2020

I visited Great Falls over the weekend. We’ve had a fair amount of rain, and I was hoping to see some intense rapids along the Potomac River. I wasn’t disappointed.

I love visiting Great Falls this time of year. There is hardly anyone in the park in the early morning hours. And the 7:00 a.m. opening leaves plenty of time to arrive and set up well ahead of sunrise in the winter months. When the temperatures are low enough, frost and icicles form on the sides of the boulders along the river. Here’s hoping for a cold winter!
