Sunday, the VRE commuter line from Manassas to DC doesn't run, which we only found out at the station, and by the time we could have gotten to a Metro station, it would have been after 3 pm anyway. Great to see Pete Seeger make it to the inauguration, even if he didn't get to sing "We Shall Overcome." But would have been better in person. Today, we tried to take the Metro from Vienna to DC, but there was a nearly two hour wait to purchase a pass, which just didn't seem worth it. So we hiked the battlefield at Bull Run and reflected on Stonewall Jackson and Rickett's artillery.
Seemed fitting, somehow.
