Winter Wonderland

This morning's snowfall, while unlikely to get me at least a two hour delayed opening at work, is definitely ideal for snowball throwin' and snowman makin'. (Needless to say, MCPS will be closed all week.) It also coated everything in a perfect blanket of white. I walked over to Sligo Creek Park to snap a few photos for posterity. Note the guy cross-country skiing.







If by some miracle I don't have to work tommorow, I'm heading to Strosniders's first thing in the morning to pick up a snow saucer and hoofing it over to the hill at Holy Cross Hospital. That's almost worth burning a sick day for...

Just beautiful! Where else in the D.C. area can you find such stunning views?

I don't know how long it's been since you were on Holy Cross hill, but when they renovated and expanded the hospital, the hill was pretty much ripped open and destroyed. It's been rebuilt with a much gentler slope and many, many trees.

Yes, I recognize that Holy Cross is not the sledding Mecca that it once was. However, I did see some kids sledding on there the last time it snowed and it still looked fun.

Does anyone remember the jump on the old Holy Cross hill??

I used to go to the Sligo Creek golf course to sled, too.

Your Pics are BEAUTIFUL! Who says Silver Spring isn't a Pretty place? The park is one of my favorite things about Silver Spring.

Jackson Road Elementary School hill Off of Jackson Road and New Hampshire Ave. is where we used to go to sled. There is a big one near the Oakview pool along NW Branch Park, but be careful, my assistant's daughter broke a couple ribs there last week while sledding.

All the amenities of Vail, but without the Colorado.

I figured that pictures from Sligo would show up. I was one of the five runners out that day, and you must've been one of the two guys with cameras.

Sligo said...

Maybe. What time were you running?

barnes said...

The two photogs (maybe three) I saw were in the Sligo stretch between Colesville and Wayne. I was in there just after noon, and then (twenty miles later) around 3:30 or 4:00.
