Bold Curves @ The Mall

Walking up and down the Mall offers gorgeous architectural sights, such as the limestone-clad National Museum of the American Indian, designed to evoke the natural shape of rock formations ~  or the steps leading in -and around- the National Gallery of Art ~
I said it before and I’ll say it again: one may well spend an entire trip to D.C., just walking up and down the Mall.

Walking the Mall: Washington Monument to Lincoln Memorial

via the World War II Memorial.

Together with all the Museums (which, as most of the Museums in Washington D.C., are open to the public free of charge) situated along both sides, this is a giant monument dedicated to government, history, art and culture. One may well spend an entire trip to D.C., just walking up and down the Mall. 

And then, there is also that House.
