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.
