Washington DC

Neither Kim or I had ever visited Washington, so we spent a full week near the heart of the city seeing everything we could fit into those seven interesting days. We were both overwhelmed and underwhelmed by our Nation's Capital. Most fascinating is that Washington is a city of contrasts.....

the old and the new....


the tall and the short ...


signs of money; signs of poverty...



tons of concrete & marble and acres of water...
Wright Flyer's and rocket power....

gasoline racers against human powered gliders....

an endless skyline behind endless fall color...


the roar of the subway and the quiet steps of the deer...


dancing warriors and silent warriors....


preserving history and making history...



the house of the President and the house of God ....


and most interestingly,
within a few miles this jungle of crowded buildings and millions of people lies a beautiful national park....
