Washington, DC, the Memorials, Part 2, the Jefferson Memorial

The Washington Monument was closed, for renovation. According to the Park Service literature, the elevator was being updated to current standards. Estimates would be sometime 2019, before it would be opened again. So, I did not go up to it but took my pictures, around it. My prospectus told me to take the bus to the Jefferson Memorial. I forgot to look at the prospectus and walked, instead. It was a nice walk with many good views around the Tidal Basin.

Once at the memorial we climb the steps and look inside:
