National Christmas Tree and Monuments Sunset Hike

  • Dec 17, 2011 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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 4PM at the top of the stairs leading up from the Metro Sation, then walk around the monuments enjoying the sunset, ending up at the National Christmas Tree to get warm by the fire and enjoy whatever performance they have that night.  As always dinner is an option and will throw it out to the group to suggest places to eat as I do not live in DC. 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!

    The sky was beautiful and the monuments amazing glimmering in the setting sun and moonlight.

    I'm so disappointed that I can't go. At least my loss opens up space for 2 others from the waiting list to go. Enjoy all!
