Memorial Day Hike

One of the great things about living in Washington, DC is that there are many things to do beyond the National Mall that are not necessarily crawling with tourists. The Prince William Forest Park is one of those. Our hike took us along three well-marked trails through native Virginian forests with features such as clear running streams and astonishingly abundant flowering Azaleas. With all this scenery around me you could probably guess that I frequently felt inspired to stop hiking and do some drawing.
