At long last the trees are leafing and the Mount Vernon Trail south of the Beltway has become a tunnel of green. This is so relaxing to ride through after a day in the concrete city. One drawback to all this flora is the fact that the Morningside bald eagle nest is nearly invisible. You really have to know exactly where to stand to see it. Small price to pay for this gorgeous sign of Spring.
Soon we’ll be seeing goslings and ducklings along the trail. I love watching them grow through the Spring and Summer.
