On this upcoming Saturday, Nov. 17,
we’ll head west to hike in
Bring lunch & water because you can, and dress warmly in layers. This is a (classy) joint event with Sierra Club MWROP & AMC DC Chapter.
Meet at 8 AM at one of two places, depending on your convenience: 1) Vienna Metro station (north Park & Ride lot), where co-leader, Mike Fischetti, will be; or 2) Grosvernor-Strathmore Metro station (Park & Ride lot behind garage), where co-leader, me, will be. (If you're getting there by Metro, let me know so we can make sure we have enough space!!)
If you want to make a weekend of it,
stay overnight in the park’s beautiful lodge (http://www.cacaponresort.com/accommodations.htm), or in a nearby motel in
If this trip seems very complicated to you, think how I feel.
Our next hike will be Dec. 1 at Antietam National Battlefield (11 miles, but with shorter options), followed by the Illumination (http://www.nps.gov/anti/planyourvisit/luminary.htm), and dinner at the historic Old South Mountain Inn (http://www.oldsouthmountaininn.com/). I’ll have more about this hike next week because that’s enough for now. However, if you are interested in the dinner, let me know ASAP since seats are limited.
