Washington Monument

These are a few pictures I took of the Washington Monument. The first one was taken from the WWII Memorial. The other was taken from the base of the WM. Check out the 2 colors on it. Did you know that when they were building it they ran out of money and had to quit. When they went back to it they couldn't find the correct color so they went with it. Do you know the difference between a memorial and a monument?

While in D.C. we got to tour the inside of the Capitol building. There were lots of statues and neat things to photograph. My favorite part was the top of the inside of the dome. So beautiful!

Just got home...

...from D.C.. I went to Washington D.C. with some of my students and we had a great time. It was cold and it drizzled on us the entire time we were there. As a parting gift, the sun came out as we were getting on the bus to go home. So over the next few days I'll be posting some of the pictures I took while on the trip. This one was taken at the Lincoln Memorial. It was lit up at night and it actually looked like Lincoln was glowing!
The last picture was taken with my camera, however, my friend Kelly took it. I wanted a picture of me standing next to Lincoln. It is amazing how big he really is! Funny, he never looked that big on the penny!
