From Hydro Flask, and in partnership with the National Park Trust’s Buddy Bison Program, this episode of the Let’s Go series introduces us to a class from Ida B. Wells Middle School that leaves Washington, D.C., to visit the 100-acre Carderock Recreation Area in nearby Maryland. Students spend the day exploring this part of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park by rock climbing—a first for many.
