Paying it Forward

About five months ago, Mariah and I ordered tickets online from the National Park Service so that we could look out of the viewing area at the top of the Washington Monument at 9 PM and see the DC night skyline.  At 555 feet and 5 1/8 inches, it is still the worlds tallest freestanding stone structure. 

On the way into Washington, we listened to Arlo Guthrie’s “Alice’s Restauarant” (which she had never heard before). Alice was followed by Bob Dylan’s acoustic version of “This Land is Your Land”. 

I may or may not have heard strains of the soundtrack to House of Cards while looking at the Capital Dome.  Did I mention that we found a free and legal parking space directly across the street from the monument?  

So – yeah. This evening was kinda perfect.
