Billy Goat Trail

Last weekend I got together with Jeni and her roommate Jesse for a little adventuring. 
One of the nice things about returning to DC is that there are people I left here. 
And it is oh so very nice to get to be back in the same city as them & to get to spend some quality time together participating in all sorts of shenanigans. 

The three of us spent the day hiking in Great Falls. 
We did part of the Billy Goat Trail, which happens to be one of the most difficult trails in the DC area, mainly because there are lots of rocks 
And I mean lots of rocks and you kind of have to cling to them for dear life 
and hope that you don't fall into the Potomac and get washed away. 
(this might be a tad bit of an exaggeration)

But it is beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. 

Here is the great big roaring Potomac River. 

We were standing on the Maryland side but there was Virginia right across the water. 

And here we are. 

We are going to start a hiking club. 
There are going to be t-shirts and everything. 
Because lets be honest, nothing is official if there aren't t-shirts. 

There is also a canal that runs through the park. 

Did I mention it was beautiful.
