a summer of daytrips

last night, my roommate said, "i think it's great that you have literally had a summer of daytrips!" that is exactly what it has been--seeing as much of this beautiful city as i can, everyday a new adventure. here are pictures from yesterday:

the national arboretum (fields and fields and hills and hills of trees, ferns, and flowers)

and the iwo jima memorial:

the monument is shockingly large. i was expecting something lifesize. it is, instead, monumentsize. there was a man with an american flag bandana wrapped around his head, carrying a very large bag walking through the park. i imagined stories for his life--walking across the country, a veteran, a hippie, a forest gump, who knows.
