Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool



On Saturday we took a little drive up to DC for the day. As you can see, they still have a lot of the snow from that big storm that blew through recently. This is the reflecting pool in front of the memorial and it is a block of ice, notice everyone walking on it? We were walking on it too until a police officer yelled for everyone to get off the ice. He kept quite busy trying to keep people off it, it was pretty much a losing battle lol.

  2. Tanya, Washington is one place I'd like to see sometime. Even though it's not that far from here, I never seem to take the time to go there. Would like to see all the different museums, and monuments that are there. I can believe that the Police were fighting a loosing battle. Their not going to stop all the visitors from doing that. I would imagine you enjoyed your time there.

  5. That's funny! I wonder why they don't want people walking on it. Maybe a safety issue and they don't want to get sued.

  6. Beautiful... I've never seen a picture of the Lincoln Memorial in the wintertime. Funny, how a bit of snow changes the whole look of the place.

  8. Finally they are able (and somehow allowed) to walk the pool. To be honest, I do miss snow with every sense I own.
    A wonderful Friday for you all.

  9. It looks fantastic and I wouldn't have thought it was a pool if you didn't say so. LOL at the image of a lone cop trying to get everyone off the ice.

  10. DC in winter is even more impressive. I need to go there when it's iced over like that.
