|Ready for the March!|

|Huge crowds at Independence and L'Enfant|
We became a little chilled from staying in one spot and since it was after the official start time of the marching, we decided to start moving around. Plus, the crowd was starting to get a little restless to start walking as well. We tried to move toward the march route, but it was still so packed, that it was really slow going!
Eventually we were able to break free and we made our way towards the Washington Monument and the White House. This is when we really got a good sense of how many people there were, it was amazing! We headed towards to ellipse to really show the new President how we felt and then decided to circumnavigate the White House.

We made it back to pick up our bikes and I headed back to Arlington with a new sense of purpose. I cannot sit idly by and watch human rights being taken away from people who deserve better from our Government. Not to mention all of the potential environmental and nature impacts that are sure to occur due to this Administration. I have already started calling my Senators to express my opinions and I hope that many of you will do the same!!
This may be a long four years ahead of us, but we must keep the fight on for the issues in which we truly believe!
