Keith Stokes' Washington DC Trip
November 2007

Crystal City Metro stop

Saturday morning my first stop was the White House, where I took photos of the front, rear and the National Christmas Tree, then walked over to the Washington Monument where I had reserved a 9 AM tour. Folks had been waiting since well before the opening time and I was the last one there for 9 AM time slot. The wait on the hill at the base of the Washington Monument was windy and cold. The only time I was cold all weekend.
