Title

Overlooking Quantico Creek

Description

A majestic view overlooking Quantico Creek during any season. This picture was taken on Thanksgiving Day 2012. I had tried to capture the ceiling lights' glare to trick my nephew into believing there were UFO's. He believed it :)

About two miles down river, to the right, is the power plant at Possum Point, a 650 acre site. The four generating units are fueled by natural gas and oil, where units 3 and 4 were recently (2003) switched from coal to natural gas.

Continue down river to the Potomac River and then up the Potomcac, to the left, is Leesylvania State Park, locally known as "Freestone Point." The park sits on the original property of Henry Lee II, great grandfather of Robert E. Lee.
