Sunrise From the Arlington House, Arlington National Cemetery

The Arlington House (also known as the Lee House) sits on the hillside over looking the Potomac River and Washington, DC.    The Arlington House looks over 250,000 military grave sites.  These photos were taken standing directly in front of the Arlington House over looking the eternal flame of John F. Kennedy’s grave site and the rest of Washington, DC.   Can you imagine this sunrise/view every day?

A Bridge With A View

The Governor Harry W. Nice Bridge is scary.   It’s about 2 miles long, has two narrow lanes and no shoulders.  Concrete barriers line the bridge to stop a vehicle from plummeting over the side.   And the bridge is steep.   The Bridge opened in 1940 and carries a lot of traffic across the Potomac River between southern Maryland and King George, Virginia.    About a week ago I got stuck at the top of the bridge for repair work.   And it was scary —  so I had to do something to entertain myself so panic wouldn’t set in.   That’s when I yanked out the ‘ole iPhone and started taking pictures of PEPCO’s Morgantown Generating Station on the Maryland side.   If nothing else, that damn bridge has a view of the Power Plant.

Great Falls, Virginia

Great Falls, ran by the National Park Service, is where the Potomac River falls over a series of steep jagged rocks.  On the Virginia side, there are three overlooks which give different views of the falls.  All of the overlooks are an easy walk from the visitors center.   To learn more visit the NPS’s Website.

The National Harbor (on the Shores of the Potomac River)

The National Harbor is located on the shores of the Potomac River, south of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge in Prince George’s County Maryland.   The Harbor is about a 2 square miles home to a convention center, hotels, restaurants, shops, and condos.    And in the Spring of 2014 — the Capital Wheel.
