5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

This was one of my favorite places when I was stationed in Washington back in my Army days. It was even better than I remembered.

“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

Could have set up camp and stayed for a week... or more! If you appreciate art you'll be in heaven; if you don't, you'll be enlightened.
