More magnificent in person than in pictures or on tv. It is a long walk between the Lincoln and the Washington and Jefferson monuments. Vietnam memorial is very close

The Memorial is a place that will stay in the memory always, it is a wonderful experience climbing the steps to reach the Lincoln statue, and then to turn around and see the image of The Needle in the Reflecting Pool is quiet unforgettable.

This is easily one of the best memorials on the mall with good reason - it is amazing inside and out! As you walk up you know feel the presence of Lincoln and then inside you see him and all his glory. Truly remarkable!

Well worth the stop just to see the Memorial. It is beautifully designed - the detail is amazing. Lots of people, though.

A lot of geese poop as you walk along the reflecting pool. Just watch your step! And it can be quite crowded when and if you are trying to get a picture on the memorial steps.
