GLS***59We learned a lot of history from our DC by Foot tour guide, we never new that work on the Monument stop for 20 years. Now the completed Monument has different stone color around 1/3 up. We love the added story and it show some things are just the way they should be. Looks great as is.

Washington is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Named for George Washington, the first U.S. president, the state was made out of the western part of the Washington Territory, which was ceded by the British Empire in 1846, in accordance with the Oregon Treaty in the settlement of the Oregon boundary dispute. The state, which is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, Oregon to the south, Idaho to the east, and the Canadian province of British Columbia to the north, was admitted to the Union as the 42nd state in 1889. Olympia is the state capital; the state's largest city is Seattle. Washington is often referred to as Washington state to distinguish it from the nation's capital, Washington, D.C.
Washington is the 18th largest state, with an area of 71,362 square miles (184,827 km2), and the 13th most populous state, with more than 7.6 million people. Approximately 60 percent of Washington's residents live in the Seattle metropolitan area, the center of transportation, business, and industry along Puget Sound, an inlet of the Pacific Ocean consisting of numerous islands, deep fjords, and bays carved out by glaciers. The remainder of the state consists of deep temperate rainforests in the west; mountain ranges in the west, central, northeast, and far southeast; and a semi-arid basin region in the east, central, and south, given over to intensive agriculture. Washington is the second most populous state on the West Coast and in the Western United States, after California. Mount Rainier, an active stratovolcano, is the state's highest elevation, at almost 14,411 feet (4,392 meters), and is the most topographically prominent mountain in the contiguous U.S.

The Smithsonian Castle is an iconic building along the National Mall in Washington, D.C. This is the famed institution's headquarters and not actually a museum itself. Take a walk around the grounds as you're exploring the mall and, if in you visiting in the summertime, stroll through the Haupt Garden on the backside.
Arlington in wintertime after a fresh snowfall is a stunningly beautiful place. The soft blanket seems to hug the ground and lay gently upon the graves of the fallen. If you come on a weekday in the afternoon there will be few people. The silence and stillness add yet another lay upon the complex emotions one feels standing in the presence of such human loss. One only hope these dead shall not have died in vain.
The more I've learned about Lincoln over the years, the more I've come to appreciate him. He was far more complex than the story told in history books and he certainly had his flaws. Nevertheless, when called upon by his nation, he found the words and the ways to keep us bound together. Do yourself a favor and read both the Gettysburg Address and Lincoln's Second Inaugural speech while you're there at the memorial. Seldom have finer words been spoken.
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is, in my opinion, one of the most elegant and moving war memorials. Its simplicity belies the poignancy and emotion you feel when you're actually there. The design forces you to descend down as the tide of names washes over you, creating a powerful reminder just how many men perished for no reason in this most senseless of American wars.
The Three Servicemen is the iconic statue by Frederick Hart unveiled in 1984 near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. When first designed, some feared the realism would detract from Wall itself. However, it's fair to say these criticism were off the mark. The figures have their eyes fixed towards the Wall, as if to be searching for or seeing their lost comrades. It is a moving tribute to all those who perished in that most senseless of wars.
The U.S. Botanic Garden sits almost right next to the Capital on the National Mall. I really enjoyed this spot as there were not that may people in side and the temperatures outside were still relatively cold. The tropical climate inside was a refreshing change. If you can spend a little time here, there is lots of interesting flora on display along with several walking paths that get you up above some of the trees.
