The District – Day off in D.C.

Where would I be without travel? I’d probably be a little less sane but imagine that I’d find some way to utilize Boise’s nooks and crannies to feed that desire for exploration. For now, I’m fortunate enough to wander out of the 208 and into new locales.

Back in the beginning of May I found myself in Washington D.C. on a job with rest of the Steve Smith Photography crew. We spent a solid week shooting a corporate event non-stop. Seven days trapped in a hotel without a single breath of fresh air nearly drove me crazy. Propitiously, we had a free day at the end of our trip to get out and explore. As cool overcast day set the stage as Steve and I jetted out to National Park for an afternoon of sight seeing.

We planned a loop that included the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial and the White House. An essence of rooted American history intensified with each successive step we took. It was truly amazing to think of what all took place in this small plot land. Each monument and memorial told it’s own unique story that brought me a far better feeling of what America was founded on and has persevered through than any text book ever could. I was super stoked to have had the opportunity to check it all out.
