FC: Washington D.C. Trip By Mac Ross
1: The U.S. Capitol Building is one of my favorite sights in Washington. I took this picture because of the angle I was at. The U.S. Capitol Building is one of the largest buildings I have ever seen. The | inside is even more impressive. This building serves a key role in our government because it is where all Senators and Representatives have meetings. The U.S. Capitol is where all of the crucial decisions are made. This building stands for the Legislative Branch.
2: The White House is one of the most important buildings in America. The White House is where the President of the United States lives while in office. The President lives and works in the White House. This is where the Executive Branch is based. I took this picture while our class was walking by.

3: Iwo Jima is one of the most intricate, well detailed monuments in Washington. This monument is 32 feet tall and is one of the most famous in Washington. This monument is a sculpture taken right from a picture taken during the war. This monument was one of my favorites in Washington because of it's incredible detail and size.
4: The Lincoln Memorial is an extremely memorable because of it's detail and structure. The Lincoln Memorial is one of my favorites in Washington. This memorial is large and is on a staircase | overlooking the reflecting pool and the Washington Monument. This monument has a very high ceiling and the marble staircase are designed well. This monument signifies one of America's greatest presidents.
5: The Washington Monument is a phenomenal piece of architecture. This monument may be over 500 feet tall, but the meaning of the monument didn't strike me as meaningful. I felt that this monument is one of my favorite monuments but the meaning was not made clear by this monument. This memorial doesn't show the creativity and intelligence that George Washington had. Although the symbol is not clear, this monument can be looked at as the heart of Washington. D.C.
6: Arlington National Cemetery is one of the most powerful places in Washington. Seeing the 350,000 gravestones in one park is a powerful sight. The seemingly endless gravestones are standing in rows. | The rows of the gravestones those of soldiers. The gravestones are soldiers standing in line for eternity.
7: The Korean War Memorial is one of the most memorable memorials in Washington. This memorial is one of the most powerful memorials that we visited in Washington. The quote on the black marble ground is one of the most powerful quotes in any memorial. This memorial in it's entirety is extremely powerful. From the faces on the wall to this quote on the ground to the fountain on the marble, this memorial is one of the most powerful you will see in your life.
8: The World War II Memorial is one of my favorites that we visited. This monument is large and is fully made of marble. The marble designs on the ground is one of my favorite parts of this monument. There are many block pillars representing every state. The fountains are all in complete sync making the design of the monument even more beautiful. This monument is one of my favorites in Washington.
