The ride up was great. We considered getting off the interstate and getting onto the scenic skyline drive, but as we got further into Virginia, the sky was darkening, so it looked like it would have been a dark and wet ride if we had. By the time we made it to DC we were all excited to be there. We checked into the hotel and immediately headed to the Metro to catch a ride to DC. It was going to be a late night anyways, so we took our time and checked out the White House, Lincoln Memorial and then went to the recently opened Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. Surprisingly, it wasn’t too crowded, so I was able to get some really nice shots. We ended up walking across the Potomac River to the Metro near the cemetery, but it ended up being closed. So, we ended up adding quite a walk to the already lengthy day just to be able to ride back to the hotel.
