Urban Hike on Roosevelt Island + Ben's Chili Bowl

**Update.  Due to construction in Rosslyn, let's meet at Rosslyn metro.  We will still swing by what I believe "was" Crandal Mackey park, but it will probably be easier to meet at the metro station.  Meet outside on the sidewalk on Lynn St.

Enjoy an evening hike with Nature Lovers.  We will spin through Rosslyn (Arlington) and around Teddy Roosevelt Island and then mount the hill to Ben's Chili Bowl.  Total distance will be around 3 to 4 miles.  Hike will be cancelled for insufficient sign-ups.

The meeting location is close to Rosslyn metro and to a Capital Bikeshare station. The official endpoint for the hike will be Ben's Chili Bowl.  From there, it is about 2-3 blocks to both Courthouse and Rosslyn metro stations.

    so this is not the original ben's around 12th and u nw i guess. there are some nice cypress trees in the swamp on the island---one of the most northern stands though they even go to up to delaware (a form of software or kitchenware if i remember my evolutionary theory or possibly its a state of nonexistance----i mostly go to birdwatch and find plants , and i have a whole list of chemical plants up there. though mostly dupont circles of opposition . ).

    there are some weird creatures in the pool at the center of the island, but specilaists would know what they are but i dont..
