We were invited to take a historical canal boat ride in Great Falls (near Georgetown) and come enjoy the park we are working in. We stated the day off with a leisurely hike through gorgeous scenery, tall trees, abundant wildlife, and....lots of invasives! The boat ride in the afternoon was very quaint and laid back. Our interpreter was very informative with a great sence of humor. The boat went through a lock and we were raised appx. 8 feet in elevation and continued downstream for 1/2 mile, all the while being pulled my mules. It was exciting feeling the history of the park. After our boat ride we hiked to see the Great Falls of the canal which is the Potomac River George. It was energizing seeing the beauty of the park today. We are all very happy to be here!
