Ballston, VA to Lincoln Memorial, DC, 3 July 2010 (11 miles)
It was a hot sunny afternoon, the temperature in the 90s. We set out East on the Custis Trail catching the shade whenever we could. At Rosslyn we got on to the Mt. Vernon Trail and headed South to the Memorial Bridge. A few tricky road crossings and we were on the Memorial bridge heading toward Lincoln Memorial. Then we got on to the Rock Creek park trail and proceeded past the Watergate toward Georgetown, M Street and Key Bridge. Crossed Key Bridge, got on to Wilson Rd and headed home.
