Washington Capitol Building

I thought I'd share a more detailed look at some of our Washington trip destinations over a few posts.

First up is the Washington Capitol, a truly impressive building of neoclassic style.

The interior of the dome features some impressive art work.

And if you're read Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol, you'll appreciate this photo of the Apotheosis of Washington painted on the ceiling of the dome.
A couple more pics.
