On Presidents’ Day, we took advantage of the free admission to visit Great Falls Park in Virginia. In previous years, I might have been grumpy about the crowds drawn by the fine weather. The photo (or at least the full-size version of it) shows that the Maryland side was also popular, so we certainly wouldn’t have avoided the crowds by taking our walk on that side.
This year, I was uncharacteristically happy to be among a crowd. It was good to see so many people enjoying and appreciating the National Parks. The Park system is one of the many great things about the USA.
