Visiting Washington D.C.

This trip to Washington D.C. was part of a road trip vacation that my wife and took together. She had never been to Washington D.C. and I had visited several times as a young boy, so I was eager to take her. The photos that follow are a handful of the sites that we visited. We tried to pack in as much site seeing as possible into this trip. And of course my favorite part of Washington D.C. was the architecture.
