We visited Great Falls a couple of years ago, but there wasn't nearly this much water when we were there (October). We'll have to go back in the Spring.

A fine group of action shots of the rushing river. I liked hearing the roar of the water as it flows over the rocks.

Beth, Haven't had much blogging time lately, so I back-tracked through your past week of posts of North Carolina and Virginia. Loved your Biltmore post. Our last visit there was in the spring when they had the Downton Abbey exhibition. We have been planning a trip but stay a little closer to home lately as our son-in-law is in late stages of kidney cancer. The mill in Virginia looks like a good place to visit and the pretty pink Victorian where you stayed looks like a wonderful place to stay. Wishing you a happy week ahead!

Waterfalls are so beautiful. This one is pretty neat and listening to it on the video was really cool.

I am so glad you included the video! People need to watch it to appreciate this place. I would not want to fall in there, but I sure would like to see it!

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
