We will return to Fort Chaplin. This is always a very special trip in May. We see wild flowers which only appear in May and each year at Fort Chaplin we seem to see more than the year before.

Directions: Meet on East Capitol Street at 41st Street NE. Traveling east on Benning Road from Minnesota Ave., NE, go all the way to where Benning curves to the right and intersects with East Capitol Street. Take a right on East Capitol and head west a few blocks until you get to 41st Street NE on your right. Take a right and park on 41st or on East Capitol if you can.

Bring: Water and lunch.

Note: Easy to moderate walk.
