TR Island

TR Monument

A DC Report

Well, I have a new favorite DC monument.


Although in the middle of a crowded metropolitan area, this park is visually secluded and it's easy to imagine you're taking a walk in some small forest when you come upon a clearing populated with a peaceful memorial to one of our former presidents. Something about the wooded setting gave me a feeling for Narnia.

Sadly, the impression is all visual. The island is in the middle of the Potomac, under the National Airport flightpaths and across a small channel from I-66 and the GW Parkway, so the sounds of the city are never far away.

Oh, and poor Teddy has gotten the Soviet Statue Treatment. Ah, well. Posted by Hello
