Last full day in DC – last little bit of monument hunting. And I got to see the one I haven’t yet, the one across the water that always seemed so far away when I’d see it (after, of course, trekking around for hours already).

Seeing the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument and World War II Memorial and Vietnam Memorial and Korean Memorial and Martin Luther King Memorial is always special, just the vibe of it all and remembering why people make memorials and what true leadership in this country meant once upon a time. But Jefferson was new and that was the best sightseeing part of the trip.
