Washington Monument

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 29 July 2018 in Architecture.

Yesterday morning I went downtown mainly to see the Vietnam War Memorial but I ended up visiting some of the other memorials. My son came along with me. I still have difficulty walking and he helped to carry my camera bag plus it was nice spending time with him. We got there right at sunrise and it was nice since there were not many people out and about yet. The next few pictures are from my quick tour of the memorials.
