• "Still ... Dreaming:" 6th Annual MLK Walk

    West Basin Drive near Independence Avenue SW

    Postponed from Monday due to dangerous windchill conditions. Every day is a good day to celebrate the endeavors of this great man. Though it's not strictly a Kennedy March, MLK was a contemporary who often shared similar goals. I also organize a more traditional 50-Mile Kennedy March in Indianapolis, annually each May, to recognize MLK's death and RFK's tribute speech there that same night. The brothers Kennedy and MLK are linked with Abe Lincoln in this song introduced by the Smothers Brothers: https://goo.gl/WF949U This will be the 6th annual MLK Walk. Our route again has several easy access points to the Metro. We begin at the MLK Monument at 9 am, then we traverse to the Fish Market, Nationals Park (2 miles) and the Anacostia Boardwalk with option to participate in the one-mile Anacostia MLK Parade at 11 am. We'll visit the H St. Ben's Chili Bowl (6 miles) for lunch. Some may want to end here or at the Catholic U. Metro (7.5). Others will "march" to the National Cathedral (11 miles). Then complete the loop back at the MLK Monument (14.5 miles) start by 2-3 pm.

Coming soon: The McLean Loop Trail, a max of 16 miles on the Potomac Heritage National Scenic trail from Scotts Run and along the Potomac to Pimmit Run and a loop back to Scotts Run. "Walk on," Ray
