The National MallMarch 12 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C
Beautiful, partly cloudy day. With a spring in our step we spent the day walking and exploring the National Mall. I remember the first time I walked the mall was when I was visiting Heather. She was working on a White House Conference at the time. I would take off exploring on. My own during the day while she was at work. I remember thinking how close everything seemed. Little did I realize that things seemed closer due to the ginormous size of the monuments.
The National Mall is home to iconic monuments including the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. At the eastern end is the domed U.S. Capitol, and the White House is to the north. It's also flanked by Smithsonian museums, and its lawns and pathways are often crowded with school groups, joggers and softball teams. Nearby, the Tidal Basin reservoir is known for its blossoming cherry trees.Read more
