Washington, DC - Part 2: Lincoln Memorial

This was my 2nd favorite spot in DC.  It felt surreal to be at the Lincoln Memorial since I have seen so many pictures of it, and never expected to see it in person.  The architecture was absolutely gorgeous.

His view definitely doesn't suck... I'd stare at it forever, too.

The best part?  There was a little bookshop!  Brent discovered it first and said, "You didn't miss anything. It was just a bunch of cheesy souvenirs and coloring books."  Um hi, have we really been together for 6 years?  I made a beeline for it. I ended up with a stack of postcards and a little book of poems written by Lincoln.  I thought this part of one of the poems from the book was very fitting and a bit haunting...
