A Summer Day in DC (Before the 100 Degree Days)

22 07 2012

Hot, steamy, sultry air.  Great for a beach vacation.  Not so great for a weekend of walking the streets of Washington DC.  We lucked out by visiting DC on a sunny Saturday, just before the high temperatures and high humidity hit the city.

We did our best to pack in as much DC culture as we could in a day.  Political icons, historical establishments, Smithsonian Museums and some of the most photographed monuments.
