From the Bethesda Metro Station, Woodmont Ave. to Wisconsin Ave. to Norwood Ave. and Norwood Park, to the Capital Crescent Trail, to the Bethesda Metro Station. My left knee had been hurting earlier and it had been rainy. My knee was feeling better so I was glad to get out for a much needed run.

Serpentine Barrens Conservation Park, MD. It was sunny and calm outside but still warm. It was forecast to hit 70 F. I even had a bug land on me--far too warm for being the time of the dead of winter. I did a little more in the green maze of the map and made better sense of areas I was having difficulty with the day before. I limited my time in this area and moved onto the other side of Greenbriar Branch; the side with much super open terrain, scattered boulders and rootstocks. I started that by covering parts where it's more obvious that the park is bordered by houses. Despite a wide rough open pipeline ride between the park and the houses, I found a fair amount of dumping. Most of that was vegetation cuttings but there was some trash, including a hot water heater. There were also a lot of oddly scattered black plastic buckets, like someone was onetime trying to clean up the park, and then just quit leaving the buckets scattered around. It was hard to believe the winds scatted them like that, but possible. I did find more of what I came for--lots of scattered boulders with a few rootstocks amidst them. Even though I was walking most of the time, my left knee was achy. I jogged most of the way back, just after sunset.
