D.C.'s Finest Sights

Ten miles above Washington, D.C. the Potomac River drifts lazily at 2,000 feet wide. Suddenly it narrows to a few hundred feet, plunges 76 feet over Great Falls, and races through a deep 2-mile long ravine called Mather Gorge, which is just 200 feet wide on average. After that the river gets much wider and sedate as it approaches D.C.

When friends and family come to visit I give them two options each day: I can give them Metro cards and a map so they can go see the standard sights on their own, or I can take them this fabulous part of the Potomac River.
