Full Length of the River

Am back from a lovely afternoon on the far side of the river with my in-laws. It was gorgeous out -- must have been close to 60 -- and even the dog was in the mood for hiking.

The Maryland side of Great Falls, seen from the Virginia side.

Whirlpool in the Potomac River.

The vultures don't care which side of the river they're on.

The remains of the old canal, Matildaville.

Probably everyone already knows this but Viggo Mortensen is on the cover of tomorrow's Parade magazine, distributed in lots of newspapers in the U.S. (including The Washington Post where I got it). Good to see he's still avoiding publicity. *g* They also pick ROTK as a shoo-in for Best Picture tomorrow night.

Will now go make some attempt to answer the pile of comments and e-mails I haven't gotten to all week.
