The sun was shining, and Shira was off from work, so we took advantage of the day by hopping on our bikes. I was curious just how much of the Mt. Vernon Trail we could do. It extends 18 miles or so, and ends up, as the name suggests, at Mount Vernon, George Washington's Estate.
Between my eagerness to overdo it, and Shira's stubbornness to not back down from a challenge, we managed to make it all the way to mile 0 at Mount Vernon. After 18 miles of biking, we downed the few snacks I had brought, and were back on the trail.
All said and done, it was about 34 miles of biking - and boy do I feel it! But the scenery was just amazing and what a thrill it was to finally tick off this challenge.
We were in such a hurry, I didn't capture many photos. But still, I couldn't resist grabbing a few:
It's such a picturesque area -- if you haven't explored the trails in the area, you really must!
