"Down is harder than Up!" Roadkill tests the proposition at dead-end Garfield Av, where he clings to saplings and descends the steep hillside first climbed six months ago (2020-09-23 - The End Is Nigh). A dirt track along Rock Creek's left bank leads across muddy puddles to the paved bikepath. Most of the Audubon Naturalist Society side route is boardwalk, but a final hill is tricky-rocky-rooty. Bright graffiti graces the understructure of a bridge just inside the Beltway, surveyed from the opposite side of the stream just four days ago.
