    Default Got Fancy Trail Photos? VDOT wants 'em!

    The NOVA District Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator reached out to me as she's looking for a photo to use on the welcome page of a new NOVA District Count App.

    If you desire such fame and glory, here's some more details:
    "We are looking for a photo to use for the splash (welcome) page of our upcoming NOVA District Count app (website). It needs to be:
    Taken in the NOVA District (i.e.; in Arlington, Fairfax, Prince William, Loudoun Counties or one of the cities or towns within their borders).
    Showing non-motorized transportation (bicycling and/or pedestrians)
    In the public domain or with permission from the photographer to use it
    Anyone wanting to submit a photo can do so by sending the photo to my email address below. Preference will be given to photos on VDOT facilities."

    Now, another fun game. Who knows all the VDOT trail facilities in Arlington?

    Hmm. Most of my photos of VDOT trails would make people hate life; perhaps they could improve their trails to allow happier photo ops?

    OK, so I will guess VDOT trails in Arlington include the Route 50 sidepath, and Custis Trail.

    I had those two, plus the 27 Trail (both segments), and the 110 Trail.
