No sightseeing trip to Washington DC is complete without a visit to the Lincoln Memorial. This is one of the largest memorials in the DC mall area.

My largest regret is that I had limited time here and rushed through seeing this memorial. Even in the short time here there is a sense of awe that comes over a visitor. I plan to return at a later date to do this memorial justice.

One of his greatest speeches is carved into the wall for all to read.

Almost equal in grandeur is the view that Lincoln has of Washington DC. The Washington Monument and the Reflecting Pool are a sight to see from these steps.

 

 

A magnificent sight to see indeed.
