DC: The Lincoln Memorial

Added on by Bill.

The last on the monument, memorial and museum tour was Lincoln. This one was a lot more crowed than the Jefferson Memorial; may be because it was a bit more accessible?

DC: The Jefferson Memorial #2

Inside the Memorial one comes face to face -- or more precisely face to ankle -- with the rendition of the man himself.  Along the walls the words he spoke.  In all a very impressive monument, one worthy of silence and reflection.

DC: The Jefferson Memorial #1

The weather on our first day in Washington was mixed; there was sun, wind, cloud and rain.  Bad for touring, good for photography.  I caught each of these elements in this shot as we walked to the Jefferson Memorial.

DC: The Washington Monument #1

Added on by Bill.

The next stop on our return was Washington--a city of monuments, memorials and museums.  Our hotel was located just a few blocks from the Lincoln Memorial, although it was the last one we visited.  The Washington Monument was the first:
