Lake Needwood

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 28 February 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

Lake Needwood is a 75 acre reservoir located just east of Rockville. It is about a 10 minute drive from my house. I like to go there to sit and reflect and to take pictures during every season. I have a lot of fond memories of taking my boys to Lake Needwood for picnics and fishing when they were small.
