1. While walking past the the construction that's been going on for months (and has included some pretty dramatic demolition), I came across this time lapse camera hanging around:
I've never noticed a camera in the area before, so I'm wondering why install one now? They've demolished part of the bridge and put up a new one; seems a little late to add in a timelapse camera. Or maybe it was there all along and I hadn't ever noticed it?
2. I'm running up this short connector trail that leads from Rock Creek Trail to the Dumbarton House and I notice this tree crammed full of rocks.
I can't imagine this trail gets much traffic. So what's up with someone spending the time to do this?
Any explanations for either of these?
