    thanks, went on the underpass last night and went down in the mud. like a human bowling ball but lucky didn't knock down any runners coming the opposite way. was completely covered but on my way to silver spring and didn't know the neighborhood or where I was exactly when it happened, so thanks for calling it in.

    Covered in vines (none looked like poison ivy) and a bit tall/wide so can be difficult to cross, especially with bikes catching on the vines.
    I believe I sent a message to NPS (one is never sure with those forms).

    My ELITE plastic bike usually comes to work covered in mud, but I still bring it up to my office so I can gaze on it from time to time. I don't understand something here. Bonus Rod Smith sighting.

    As of 8am this morning, the Four Mile Run Trail still has excessive mud and is quite slippery in two places: Under I-395 and Glebe Road. Both site reported to Arlington parks.

    Thanks, Henry. It would be great to get an update if you hear anything back.

    MVT tree at TR Island and Trollheim was gone Wednesday (5/16) afternoon.

    In other news, the 4MRT 395 underpass has been cleared of mud as of this morning (5/17). The Glebe underpass is still muddy, but there are singletracks worn through the mud to the pavement.

    ART and Anacostia River Trib trails (that I rode at least) were open and OK this morning, and I saw two @PGParks crews out checking them over, which is great!
