About 1 1/2 miles along the Potomac river, the park extends. Neighboring it is 1, 299 acres of the former homes of George Washington and Robert E. Lee. Stratford hall is minutes away.
Here are some pictures of our trek to fossil beach where fossilized sharks teeth can be found.
the bench you can see is just right before we head down a sharp decline.
an 8/10 of a mile round trip hike, doesn't sound like much but it was something I wasn't used to. Down the paths to the beach was fine, but coming back up was a whole different matter. Will have hiking shoes the next time.
this gets steeper
Paradise as soon as we come around the woods to the beach.
Can't really see them well with my cell phone camera but there are eagles in the trees ahead on the cliff top.
Both sides are beautiful colored cliffs
trees that fell from the cliff behind me
Will be back
