Visit to the Capital

I recently visited my sister in Washington, DC.  We walked around the city on a nice sunny afternoon and I had to chance to take some photos that captured some incredible architecture of these historical buildings.  If you haven’t visited DC I recommend you go!  Here’s what we saw:

Elk Knob State Park, NC

We returned to Elk Knob State Park, NC – this time with some decent weather.  It was clear enough that we got a nice view from the top of the mountain.  Here’s a few random things I saw along the way as well as the view from the top!
