Ascent Trip Report

Well when you are from FL any hill beats a FL highpoint and since I love trees and arboretums, I have to give a rating of 4. Outdoors in the National Arboretum is way cooler than some silly place in a parking lot somewhere. Bummer I had to jog it the rain.Since it was still winterish and few leaves - had a view of the large monuments in DC. But that view would gone in spring when things leaf out.
