I decided to stop and finally check out Roosevelt Island on my way home from Regan International in DC around 7 this morning. I have heard a lot about it’s trails, but never had been there, this morning was my chance to check it out.
I love finding and exploring remote parts of any city, and at 7 this morning this park was a ghost town. I took some cool pictures of the swamp area, a towering statue of one of my favorite American historical figures, and managed to hike up the an old trail on the Potomac and found a small fleet of fishermen.
I am still blown away by the fact that all the beauty of this island is hidden within this huge city; my gps said I was less than 2 miles from the airport.
Anyway it was an awesome way to start my day, even complete with coffee and random cigarette breaks. Now in less then an hour I commence a very full and hectic tattoo day. Wish me luck.
