These are pictures of the 2008 walk for the Reston Museum. This year the walk started at the Tall Oaks Village Center and covered the Uplands area including the Buttermilk Creek Trail. One of the places visited was the site of a gas distribution station explosion in 1974 that completely demolished the building.

Crossing a bridge over the outlet stream from Lake Anne. A walking stick was handy on the uneven surface of the Buttermilk Creek Trail.
