We spent the second part of Sunday in the National Arboretum. We'd actually spent enough time in the Zoo that we got there fairly late, so we took the tram tour to get a view of what's there, and walked around the vistor's center a bit. There's a ton of stuff of see there, and I definitely want to make it back down there someday to take advantage of it.
The columns in the first two pictures are old sandstone columns from the Capital building. They were placed in storage when they were replaced with marble columns, and recently moved to the Arboretum. They make an interesting statement standing in their field.
