Jefferson Memorial

The Jefferson Memorial from the Tidal Basin. My favorite Memorial in all of Washington DC!
Another outstanding shot! Excellent and elegant!

@hiiretips - How much more snow needs to melt before you get your spring?!!! You had a LOT of snow!

@grizzlysghost - that would give me goosebumps to witness re-enlistment on the steps of this monument! How long were you in the service? I have incredible admiration for those who give their lives for us, so Thank you for all you've done! My brother is in the Army. Makes me super proud!

@terek55 - you still have time! Our local weather guy (WHAG - hagerstown) was down there today and they were peak today! So I will bet that if there is not a good storm or heavy rain, they will still be out for at least another week. If you have no plans this weekend, you could brave the crowds! :o)

@portereliz1958 - I think you will be in luck! Our local weather guy headed down there today and they are full and appear to be at peak today (I was there 2 days ago and mine were not as full as the pictures he posted) If there aren't any storms, wind or heavy rain, I think you will be in for a big treat! Go EARLY. REALLY early so you can get a good spot to park and before the crowd gets crazy.

@ellimae - thank you! I appreciate the follow and the sweet comments!

@gark - Foggy Bottom is still a great place! DC has it's issues though, so some of the really cool places have trouble. But even so, still a great place! There were so many runners on Monday. I was amazed at how they navigated the crowds. I guess you get used to it. But a wonderful place for a run, for sure!
