Ascent Trip Report

Took the red line metro from near the White House.
Walked roughly 15 minutes from the metro station to the Reno Reservoir area.
Walked across an empty soccer field, past another soccer field, climbed a hill and walked around a gated fence, through shrubbery until I got to the other side. No sign of a survey marker. Continued a the walk around until I ended up where I had started. Did another internet such, read the entire article, then walked to the area I thought it would be. Found the marker rather quickly after that. There is an area that is higher in elevation but that might be man made and does not count as DC's high point.
