Boardwalk - Lake Fairfax Park

Fairfax County, Northern Virginia

Accessed via Baron Cameron Avenue and Lake Fairfax Drive

 

I went out this morning in search of vibrant sunrise colors; instead, I found heavy fog and lots of blues as Northern Virginia prepares for its share of Hurricane Irene this weekend. The fog created a nice dreamscape feel on a nearby dock as the horizon was almost completely obscured and the colors were very monotone.

 

Lake Fairfax Park encompasses 476 acres, including the 18 acre lake pictured above, an outdoor swimming pool complete with lazy river, picnic areas, campgrounds, trails, and several synthetic turf athletic fields. Anglers enjoy stocked rainbow trout in the lake and stream that runs throughout the property from the months of February through March.
