Great Falls Virginia Real Estate Market Snapshot: January 2011

Kayaking at Great Falls

I don't know about you, but I never get tired of the beauty of the whitewater and the Potomac River at Great Falls.  However, while I've gone whitewater rafting before on Class 5 rapids, you're not going to find me braving these falls anytime soon like the kayaker above.  (photo credit: stevehdc)
