This brief posting is just to document that yesterday, on a cool, clear, breezy day, I got to my old westbound turn-around point, downtown Herndon. For years I looped off the W&OD on the way west to climb Hunter Station Road, which has a steep incline of about 14% for about a quarter mile. I gave that up as a normal routine several years ago when my heart rhythm wouldn’t take it. Instead I extended the ride to west Herndon, but here is my original spot, exactly 11 miles from home, making a nice 22 mile ride. You’re looking at the scene from the north side of the trail, where I am sitting on a bench. Note the old station, the baggage wagon, the semaphore signal, and the plaza to the left with the table and umbrella, a new twist. You can perhaps make out that the station door on the right has some stained glass panes, 1890s style. So nice to be there again! I promise that henceforth I shall continue to progress in my recovery without marking every small step with a blog posting.
