Hike at Great Falls

Hike at Great Falls

For official fall activity #2, I was ready for some serious hiking. I knew the weather this weekend was going to be perfect for it—bright and cool, but not too chilly—and so H and I set out to enjoy the great outdoors. H chose where we would go, since he’s more familiar with the local hiking scene than I am, and he picked Great Falls, a relatively close national park with good hiking trails and stunning views of the Potomac River waterfalls and rapids.

DC Bucket List Items #4 and #5: The Hirshhorn Museum and Eastern Market

After going months without accomplishing any bucket list items, I visited two places, the Hirshhorn Museum and Eastern Market, in one sunny Saturday! My good friend from college was in town for an event at the Hirshhorn, and we explored DC together afterwards. The lure of art, time to catch up with a friend from college, and brunch was enough to entice me onto the metro.
