Announcing a new Meetup for Geocaching in the DC Metro Areas, and beyond!
What: National Christmas Tree and Caching
When: December 12,[masked]:00 PM
Look West Old Man meeting location
1800 E St NW
Washington, DC 20006
We'll meet up at cache GC8DDA - a virtual.
From there we'll head over to GC9D91 and then GC440D. There are 2 more immediately next to the final cache, and tons of others within walking distance.
After the first three people may want to branch off to go find other caches or to walk around the National Christmas Tree (and Santa will be there - hehe).
This is a joint event and some children may be coming along for the caching.
Here is information on the National Tree:
Seasonal displays include a Yule log and a large-scale model train. For the 15th consecutive year, the National Christmas Tree Railroad will provide model trains that surround the base of the National Christmas Tree. The trains will run from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily through January 1st.
In what becomes the "Christmas Pathway of Peace," the National Christmas Tree and 56 smaller trees--one for each state, five territories and the District of Columbia--serve as the event focal point. All 57 trees will be lit each evening at dusk until 11:00 p.m. and will be lit each night through January 1st. Sponsoring organizations in each state provide the tree decorations and each decoration is encased in a protective plastic globe to shield it from the weather.
Be sure to get contact information to help locate people - and dress warmly!
