Walking the length of National Mall

Happy Juneteenth. We spent the holiday weekend in Washington with family who were visiting. On Saturday we took the Metro to Union Station and walked the length of the National Mall from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial, with a few detours here and there.

It was the perfect day to walk through Washington and to end, where we did, in Old Town Alexandria—the sun wonderfully luminous, the sky playful and vivacious, and the temperature sultry but not sweltering.
