***Yes… this is a repeat of the event I’m running on Monday night.***
Join us for “half price gourmet burgers” at Bungalow Lakehouse(46116 Lake Center Plaza Sterling, VA 20165) (https://www.bungalowlakehouse.com/). Then after we’re finished eating, we’ll head over to Algonkian Regional Park and explore the ANP Sanctuary trail at night. We’ll hike out to the Sanctuary Trail at night under an almost full moon and enjoy the unusual sights and sounds of the forest at night.
Option: If you want, you can skip the burgers (though that would be no fun:-) and meet us at 8:30PM at the small picnic pavilion back behind the Potomac Lakes Sportsplex. The Sportsplex is located on your right just before you enter Algonkian. The picnic pavilion is a small free standing shelter about a hundred yards past the Sportsplex maintenance building which also has a picnic bench sitting out front.
***IMPORTANT*** Please be certain you plan on attending before you RSVP. If you RSVP and your plans change… no worries. Just be sure to update your status so someone else on the wait list can jump in if they want. Your cooperation is appreciated.
Please bring a head lamp or flashlight preferably one with a red filter.
