The Washington Monument, still covered in scaffolding for earthquake repairs. It won't reopen until 2014, three years after the 5.8 2011 quake!
Clint and Tasha pose in front of the monument, sort of.
Nice view of the Capitol.
One of the many lovely gardens outside of the Gallery.
Clint and Tasha liked the fountain!
A perfect magnolia blossom.
Planning the next stop...
Inside the Gallery.
Beautiful early American furniture!
My favorite exhibit- the Ballets Russes. No photos were allowed...there were some gorgeous but fragile costumes and set backdrops.
Lunch in the underground walkway between the Gallery buildings...this is the view we had.
Keeping with the ballet theme of the day- a Renoir.
We met Katie here for dinner. Spanish tapas. It was awesome.
Tasha was delighted with the Russian doll souvenirs from the Gallery.
Last day, Museum of the American Indian.
Ironic no smoking sign. Those are tobacco plants! :p
I didn't stay long at the museum. It was dark and hard to read the descriptions of the artifacts...it gave me a whopping migraine. Spent the rest of the afternoon in the hotel in the dark. :( But otherwise, it was a great little trip.
There are other photos, all at my Facebook page!
