One of the unexpected highlights of my trip was taking the tour underneath the Capital building and walking under the road to the Library of Congress across the street. The statues of the States is awesome, and just the whole experience was thrilling.

I walked around the entire outside this trip becasue it was a gorgeous day and because the friezes amd sculpture and architecture are worthy of attention and notice. It's beautifully proportioned and belongs to us all.

We had to view this from about 200 yards away because of construction. Very impressive structure, a true work of art.
