Blogging on ActiveRain is what DC beautcrats call "traffic calming"

On almost every ride home through Rock Creek Park, I come upon a traffic backup on Tilden Street NW, waiting for cars to make a left turn onto Beach Drive.  The light is short, and it seems that everyone wants to turn left.  And normally my Type-A hate- to-be- stuck in traffic alarm goes off.  But not anymore.  I reached over to the passenger seat and picked up my camera, secretly hoping that the light would not turn green too quickly.  And I got the shot of the old Pierce Mill.

No chace of road rage now!
