Lincoln Memorial at Night

I’ve been to the Lincoln Memorial twice…sort of.  My first visit was more of a run-by, as I passed Lincoln around the 11-mile mark of my Marine Corps Marathon.  I was honestly more focused on keeping my eyes peeled for Heather and my parents, who were planning to be there (luckily I spotted them loudly cheering among the sea of crazy spectators), so I didn’t really check out the building itself.

However, I was back in Washington D.C. just about a month later, and the Lincoln Memorial was one of a few places we checked out on our short trip.  The way all these structures were lit at night made them even more striking, and I thought the view of Lincoln sitting in his own columned Parthenon from this angle looked a bit majestic.  It was a chilly November evening, but I was glad to have the chance to experience this significant site and be reminded of this country’s history.

So Happy Birthday to Lincoln and Washington this month (rolled up into today’s Presidents’ Day).  And not to be forgotten, Happy Birthday today to my 9-year-old niece, Madison!
