  • The new Martin Luther King Jr memorial
MLK Jr memorial

 

  • The Jefferson memorial.
Washington has so many monuments to take in, and it was a really lovely walk visiting these places.  We couldn’t go up the Washington monument as there has been earthquake damage, so my record of visiting multiple times over the past 20 years and never going up remains intact!
