Up the River

In Washington, we normally think of the Anacostia River as a sewer. People sometimes talk about cleaning it up. But upstream, not far from the city, it has the look and feel of a wild river. Just outside the Beltway, at Bladensburg, is a delightful waterfront park where you can explore this little-known part of the DC suburbs. Who would have imagined that this place lies so close to such a big city?
