Rock Creek is My Nature Fix

Now that the fall is here, and the weather perfect, where do you go for your green fix? Where is your bit-o-nature?

For me it’s Rock Creek Park. Closed to traffic, and open to cyclists and runners, the roads and trails are the perfect mix of urban and wild. Nature and man coexisting in the middle of Washington DC.

It also helps that I live a short run away and I can have brunch after my bike.

But still, I don’t understand those that travel far to see big trees and little streams. We have a whole wild world right in our midst, no state line crossing needed.

No hour-plis on highways or backroads, this is what you can see in minutes, for hours.

    It’s my morning Zen for the commute. I used to do the GW, but during the fall and spring it’s crowded with all the folks who no longer have vacation to burn and have kids in school and need to get to western edges of DC.

    I was driving my motorcycle through until I needed to get it fixed, now coasting the car down from Silver Spring (and I mean coasting… thank goodness for the slope) in the morning is so relaxing.
