There is an aspect of Alexandria, Virginia that not everyone sees: the beautiful, lush parks that speckle the busy city landscape with their winding trails, songful birds and skyward trees. Miles of running, hiking and bicycle trails are hidden in plain sight. Greater advocacy has initiated many new connector trails and bicycle lanes, many of which connect to the greenery of Virginias parks. The absolute best ways to travel are by bicycle or on foot. People of all ages and abilities can be seen enjoying Virginia trails: amputees with specialized bicycling prosthetics, an elderly cyclist on four-wheeled bicycles featuring a special doggy perch on top with sunbrella, commuters with bicycles adorned with myriad comforts, and more. I would like more citizens to be aware of this precious resource. Hiking in a Virginia park takes you to another world that is peaceful and serene, yet bursting at the seams with flowerage and verdure and the beauty of life.
