10/15/2010 Back south on the Skyline to where it became the Blue Ridge Parkway (Byway) and took that south a few miles to the Humpback Rocks VC. Here we walked to a farm area, noting the Rocks on the way. The farm consisted of real 1800s buildings relocated here in the 1950s and was very nice.

George Washington Memorial Parkway (District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia)

9/22/1996 Back into D.C.; after lots of circling stopped at Theodore Roosevelt Island (NPS). Walked across a bridge and around the island, stopping at a huge statue and monument to T.R. Drove a short way down the G. W. Parkway to Lyndon B. Johnson Memorial Grove overlooking the Potomac. Had a nice picnic lunch in the pine grove looking at D.C.

7/26/1997 Drove down the GW Parkway to Mount Vernon [NHL]. ... Up the GW Parkway, with a nice view of Ft. Washington, through Alexandria to Gravelly Point. Stopped here for a walk along the Mount Vernon Trail (NPS - part of Potomac Heritage NST) to a spot right at the end of the runway at National. Spent a while watching the planes drop in directly overhead for landing only a short distance away.

10/10/2016 Went around the beltway to Glen Echo Park, in the George Washington Memorial Parkway group of the NPS. Although just about everything was closed in the off season, I enjoyed walking around on a cool but beautiful day. Everything in the park has an Art Deco look, and a large indoor carousel is one of the main attractions.
