It is Super Tuesday and that can only mean one thing. The primary season is in full swing and the park is ready.
The dual purpose of Wolf Trap as a national park and a musical venue has its blueprint in the personality of its founder, Catherine Filene Shouse. Both nature and arts have always been an integral part of her life.
These days you don't have to be a paintbrush master to create an interesting painting. Software will create it for you from photographs.
When the Fall hits, there are colors everywhere. Of all the directions you can think of, the two most obvious are straight up and straight down.
If you come to the park in the second half of October, you will witness a true explosion of colors. Foliage in orange, yellow, red, purple... you name it.
For those who are tired of green, Autumn provides a welcome relief. The colors of all persuasions dance onto the floor and for a couple of weeks take over.
Every half year, a group of local 5th and 6th graders gets to spend a weekend in an improvised camp in the park meadow and experience first hand the magic and tranquility of nature.
In this blog, I will explore the woods upstream the Old Courthouse Spring (that is the smaller of Wolf Trap creeks).
In this blog, I will explore the woods downstream the Wolf Trap Run (park's main waterway).
