    Well, while clearly not 50% of the cars, they have not modified the area of the GWMP between boundary channel and Trollheim. It seems that about every three months there are tire tracks scraping up...

    It was a two Geese Gauntlet day. Only one had a stubborn, hissing goose, but both required lots of geese to move.

    Also, I am pretty certain on the 4MRT in Shirlington (along S. Arlington Mill Dr), one of those stations (and it might be the one closest to Walter Reed) is a pull-up bar or can be used as one.

    Goslings are out! Beware the parents.

    Spotted goslings this morning along the MVT. Only one family grouping, but I would guess more are out there. Time to watch for the over protective parents who like to attack trail users.
