While walking one day in early April with the Camino group, someone told me that Riverbend Park was a great place to walk because of the bluebells in bloom. Riverbend is a Fairfax County Park that sits beside the Potomac River upstream from Great Falls. On this beautiful spring day, we walked through the bluebells downriver to Great Falls and beyond, giving me a 5.38 mile hike.
Across the river, we saw some eagle nests. I wish we’d had binoculars.
Honey locusts, native to Virginia, have multi-textured bark.
We continued on toward Great Falls, where we stopped at the overlook.

On Sundays, I plan to post various walks that I took on our Four Corners trip as well as hikes I take locally while training for the Camino de Santiago; I may also post on other unrelated subjects. I will use these posts to participate in Jo’s Monday Walks or any other challenges that catch my fancy.
This post is in response to Jo’s Monday Walk: THAT BRIDGE, AND BEYOND.
