Just wanted to share with you all my favorite pictures from the National Mall. There are no stores there, by the way.
Jokes aside, it was a beautiful day for a nice walk around the park.
These photos were taken at the Lincoln Memorial.
There were a ton of people there.
Getting a picture of Lincoln’s statue without any people in it was quite a feat.
This is a view of the Washington Monument from the Lincoln Memorial.
The reflection pool was empty, which was kind of a bummer. Anyway, here are some more pictures of the impressive Washington Monument.
Did I mention that there were a ton of people?
These photos were taken at the National World War II Memorial
Pictures from the Korean War Veterans Memorial.
These photos were taken at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
Brian got some amazing photos of the statues.
We walked along the Tidal Basin where they were celebrating the National Cherry Blossom Festival. We wanted to check out the cherry blossoms, which is a huge attraction in DC during this time of year. They hadn’t bloomed yet, though. I was kind of bummed about that also.
We did get a nice picture of the Jefferson Memorial in the background, though.
Anyway, you get the idea. There’s a ton more pictures on Flickr if you feel so inclined. Browse away.
P.S. We did get to see the cherry blossoms bloom on our last day, but they weren’t in their full glory until after we left.
