VA - Mather Gorge Winter Sunrise Reflections.jpg
Near Cow Hoof Rock overlook at Great Falls National Park in Fairfax County Northern Virginia, the Potomac River passes through Mather Gorge, a narrow, cliff-lined passage. Here, a winter sunrise reflects a palate of blue onto the calm waters on a cold morning. Great falls is roughly fifteen miles upstream of Washington D.C. and is considered a disjointed unit of the George Washington Memorial Parkway for the iconic status of this natural landmark.
