Ballston, VA to Key Bridge DC Oct 16, 2010 (11 miles): 16 Oct, 2010 (10 miles)

A beautiful fall day, the temperature in the upper 50s. I was up at 4:00 a.m. After driving Nan and Clark to the airport I donned my hiking gear and set out for a hike. Walking along N. Glebe Rd was marvellous. The cool breeze rose to a gust later on, but felt wonderful. I crossed Chain Bridge into DC and followed the CNO canal south to Georgetown. I crossed Key bridge into Virginia and got to Wilson Blvd. Hiked up to the Farmer's market in Courthouse, bought some groceries and headed home.
