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.

You will be on Capitol Hill as you walk around the Capitol towards the end of the national mall. It is the streets leading up and around the Capitol

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