A beat-the-heat morning family (and very doggo-friendly) hike along a nearby section of the Potomac Heritage Trail.

Never been here before, yet he always knows the way.

There can never be too many water entrances.

Told you the trail was doggo-friendly.

At the end of this particular trail is the Scott’s Run Waterfall. Despite the numerous and large signs informing visitors that the water is not safe to bathe in, quite a few park goers decided they knew better than the authorities.

The Potomac on a hazy Sunday morning.

On the return loop. Brand new white sneakers and no water bottle. Clearly she’s hiked before.
