    Default Southern DC Boundary Stone

    And here's my picture for the Southern DC Boundary Stone.

    I know the route to the eastern stone, if anyone wants assistance with that one.

    After missing the south stone by 20 yards yesterday, I got the West Boundary Stone in Andrew Ellicott Park (Sunday 1/10).

    I got my second and third boundary stones today. North and east. Apparently the east stone is far more ferocious-- it has a much taller cage!

    I then decided to ride back home via Southern Avenue & the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, visiting SE stones #1 - #7 along the way

    SE 4 could use some TLC

    Got my south and west stones today and visited the stones and or close addresses to the stones along the way (mostly until we just ran out of steam).

    I also discovered that if you put your phone right on the glass, you can actually get a photo of the South stone!

    Does anyone have a good route for the Maryland/DC side of the stones? I'm looking for something fairly current. I'm happy to share my route for the SW and NW sections (although you can't see the NW stones in VA as they're in the back of private yards for the most part), but the route can show you how to get as close as possible. :-)
