My run started off at the Smithsonian Metro Stop.
Here is a shot of the Washington Monument from the Metro Station.
Here is a shot of one of the great museum, can't remember which one. Great architecture was found all around.
Once around the other side of the building, you get a great view looking toward the Washington Monument and into Virginia.
Along the way, you pass a bunch more museums and great buildings. Here is a shot of one of the museums.
From the monument, I made a right and made my way to The White House. Approaching it, there are usually tons of people out front taking pictures. Not today.
All by myself out front. I tried to see if B & M wanted to go out for coffee, but apparently they had some other plans.
Once you complete the circle of The White House, I headed back to the Washington Monument and started on toward the Lincoln Memorial.
I ran along the Reflecting Pool and up to the monument.
All fenced off, but barriers were moved and lots of people out and about.
And another view of the Vietnam Memorial
Oh well. I headed back to the memorial for a couple quick shots, then back up to the Monument.
And from there, I headed back up the Mall and over to the Metro Station where I started. It was a nice slow run with lots of great scenery.
Here is a shot of the map at the station.
