Why They Call It Rock Creek

Rock Creek flows through Washington, beginning somewhere north of Gaitthersburg, Maryland and flowing into the Potomac River in Georgetown.  

I'm very fortunate to live in a neighborhood that is surrounded on three sides by the park.  We can enjoy the cycling and running paths, and the natural beauty of the place always amazes me.

This afternoon, I pulled my car over on Beach Drive and took these photos of the creek, swollen with recent rain waters.



If you are planning to move to or from the Washington Mtropolitan area, call text or email me.  I'd be happy to help.

Gorgeous!  Rock Creek Park always fascinates me since it's smack in the middle of the city.

And Ellie, my trees are very happy, too.

Pat, Rock Creek Park is beautiful. Your title just gave me an idea for a blog. Something I just learned today about the name of a park here. I'll give you link love!

Looks a lot like the Stones River here, and no, we're not talking about THOSE stones...

Pat, You really captured Rock Creek. Looks like it was raining at the same time the sun was shining.

Pat, my grandparents are buried at Rock Creek Cemetery, does the creek go through there or is it nearby?   ~ Susan

Howdy and evening to you Patricia

Rock Creek and the area around it, sure is mighty fine and very peaceful looking. And this spot sure would be a nice one to just sit and think. You sure did take some real fine photo to share with folks!!!

Have a good one

Hi Pat... As a college student living in DC, what I remember most about Rock Creek Park was what a great place it was to go and think about things.  I think that I thought about things a lot back then!

Almost makes me feel refreshed, but it's 115 today and muggy here - no fun.

Very pretty, but which came first, the water or the rocks? Not that it matters. :)

You can just pull your car over and take these shots? Wow. That's amazing. It looks so peaceful... as long as you don't fall in! I just love water. It has a calming effect on me =)

Nice pictures, Pat. I've enjoyed hiking along there when visiting my sister-in-law who lives in Montgomery Village.
