Spout Run Falls

Arlington County Virginia, today. I finally figured out why these falls, and the ones at Gulf Branch I photographed last year, have this distinctive shape: these rock faces were quarried. These falls are just a few yards from the Potomac, and all the cliffs here were heavily quarried as recently as the 1950s. The Pentagon was built of stone from here, for starters. Anyway this was a great place to be on a perfect Fall day.
