Unusual Rock Formations
Seen along the traverse of Echo Rock, looking down to the Potomac River. Here, the river has cut some natural arches from the rock. It is very difficult to view the arches from below unless one approaches by boat, for a scramble down to them might trap you between the river and slick schist that would be highly challenging to climb.

Great Falls Park, VA-- October 2007

Thanks for posting this, I'm going to search this one out; I haven't seen anything like this at GF.

Cool story!

I hope you find it; it is a pretty neat spot out there.

It's on the Virginia side roughly right across from Purple Horse Rock.
