Photo Friday: Snow Edition, Malcolm X Park, Washington, DC

Meridian Hill - Malcolm X Park

This week’s photograph shows a diverse group of people enjoying a recreational snowball fight in specially built snow-bunkers, at Malcolm X Park, in Washington, DC. In between them, is, I believe, the “black diamond” sled run, or at least it looked black diamond to me. Elsewhere in the park there is a green run and a blue run, formed from the snow covered steps of the park.

Despite the difficult week weather wise, there were a lot of smiles to be seen.

Here is another view from the top of the park, with the Washington Monument in the distant background. At one point in Washington, DC’s history, this was going to be the site of a “colossal presidential mansion to replace the White House.”
