It sounds like it could be a pampas grass - Cortaderia, Kelly. If you try googling that it will give you some pix which may look familiar. Did it have feathery looking plumes growing from it in late summer, or did you not see it at that time of year?
For uploading pix here, there's a little tree icon in the toolbar at the top of the box where you type your post. If you click on that it will give you instructions. If you don't have that , it may be down to the device you're using - some people have issues with certain phones/laptops etc.
