This is an event I do every year and great for kids of all ages! We will meet at the Smithsonian Metro Station on the National Mall at 3:30 PM, then walk around the monuments enjoying the sunset, ending up at the National Christmas Tree to get warm by the fire and enjoy some of the performance you can find here: http://www.nps.gov/wh... As always dinner is on the agenda after the hike. Please dress warmly and be prepared to walk a few miles on a windy, chilly evening. This is a fun, get you in the Christmas Spirit Event, so let's enjoy some good cheer to get us going for the last week before Christmas or whatever Holiday Event you celebrate!This event is cross-posted with the Washington Backpackers Meetup Group. We can work out a carpool if people wish as well as I plan to go into DC on Metro. Happy Holidays everyone!
