Tour of the Washington DC Monuments at Night
In keeping with my patriotic theme this week, I want to share more of my D.C. travel photos. This time I thought it would be cool to share ones I took at night. The National Mall has such a different feel at night when all of the lights are on. If you have already seen all of the monuments during the day and get to take another trip out to our nation's capitol, make sure you do some sightseeing at night!

The elliptical pool surrounded by fountains, in the center of the WWII Memorial.
The Freedon Wall in the WWII Memorial. The wall contains 4,048 gold stars.
Each star represents 100 Americans who died in the war.
In front of the wall lies the message "Here we mark the price of freedom".
The Washington Monument. (It sure was foggy that night.)
The Lincoln Memorial. Counting from the very bottom at the Reflecting Pool to the very top, there are 98 steps. If you go to this, you might be tempted to not walk up all of steps it takes to get inside. But it is worth seeing up close, not to mention the beautiful architecture and murals inside the memorial.
