Ascent Trip Report

Our last day in the city and we didn't have any plans again, execpt that Kim needed to have a cupcake at Georgetown Cupcakes. They don't open until 10am and we have a toddler who wakes up at 6am so we had some time to kill.

I am always out looking for a new highpoint to conquer so we took the short drive up to Fort Reno to pick up the Washington D.C. highpoint. This one was surprisingly hard to find. It is just a survey marker in an open field so you have to be right on top of it to find it. Also it is not actually the highest point around it as there are a lot of manmade areas in the vicinity that rise above it. It took a little bit of figuring but we eventually made it. We parked at the Deal Middle school and walked up a small path once we got to the large open field it was a quick left and up a little hill and we were there. There wasn't anything to look at so we took a few pictures and made our way back into the city for some delicious cupcakes.
