After work urban hike - zoo & more

If you're not headed out of town for the Fourth, join me for an after-work urban hike ~ our walk will take us through the zoo (will we see Rusty the red panda??), around the outskirts of the zoo on Rock Creek Park trails, through the streets of Woodley Park, and if there's enough daylight left, on the closed-to-traffic Klingle Road.

We'll begin and end at Woodley Park.

WHERE? 2616 Connecticut Ave (in front of McDonalds, just south of Woodley Park metro)

WHEN? Wednesday, July 3, 6:15 p.m.

HOW LONG? Approximately 4 miles, should take around 2 hours or a little less.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Heavy rain or thunderstorms will cancel; if the forecast looks bad, I will email those who have signed up.  Check the meet up site before leaving for the hike.

I will email my contact information out to those who have signed up by Wednesday morning.

E-mail Phyllis with any Qs.

    Thanks for leading another great hike, Phyllis. And your inherent lucky persona saved us from even a smattering of rain. Next time, I won't even bother checking the forecast from the National Weather Service.

    4 p.m. update -- as of right now, still plan on walking tonight. If need be, we'll adjust our route to cope with the constantly changing skies.

      Helen, unfortunately not on this one; we'll be going through the zoo and they don't allow dogs.
