Local Spots: Jones Point

I went for a bike ride today. It was just too beautiful outside not to. I decided to park my car at Jones Point park because I wanted to ride the Mount Vernon Trail. Since Jones Point is the closest parking spot on the trail for me, there’s lots of parking and the best bathrooms on the trail (with the exception of Mount Vernon estate). In addition to being a great place to start a ride, Jones Point has a cute little lighthouse, some picnic tables, great views of National Harbor and of DC from downriver.

As I was riding on this beautiful day it occurred to me that a little more than a year ago I was there for a much different reason and took some beautiful portraits. My little brother and his fiancee came to DC in order for me to take some engagement pictures for them. I think this is my favorite one (taken at a building beside the lighthouse).
