Bike Ride Saturday - Mount Vernon Trail

The Washington DC area has a huge network of bike trails.  Saturday morning brought us beautiful weather, so we jumped on our bikes and took a long and leisurely ride down the Mount Vernon trail.

We biked south for about 45 minutes through Old Town Alexandria and along the scenic trails on the Potomac.  The trail is mostly paved, with some small sections of curving boardwalk here and there.  Along the way there are many parks; we saw plenty of people out fishing, picnicking, playing sports, and just generally enjoying the day.

I like to quiz Justin on which tree is "his favorite".


On our way home, we stopped at a [totally crappy] pizza place in Old Town.  The bad salad bar was worth it for the atmosphere, though.  We sat at a table out on the sidewalk, bistro-style.
