Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool

Located near the downtown area of Washington, D.C., the capital city of the United States, the National Mall is a landscaped park within the National Mall and Memorial Parks. It is an official unit of the United States National Park System and one of the most iconic and visited by the tourist. My favorite part of this place is the Lincoln Memorial reflecting pool.
The Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool is the largest of the many reflecting pools in Washington, D.C., United States. It is a long and large rectangular pool located on the National Mall, directly east of the Lincoln Memorial, with the Washington Monument to the east of the reflecting pool. - info credit:Wikipedia
  It is lined by walking paths and shade trees on both sides. Depending on the viewer's vantage point, it dramatically reflects the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Mall's trees.
 I wish we could have walk the whole place but the rain was threatening to pour when we  got there.  All we could do is adore it and  take some photos.
I was thrilled to see it in person. I have yet to discover so many amazing places here in the States.  I am glad I was able to enjoy these places with my daughter  through the  field trip that St. Joseph the Worker offers.  Being one of the chaperones was truly a fun experience.  I wish my son could have experience this as well but their trip this year was cancelled due to the pandemic.
