We almost missed the Jefferson Memorial on our trip to DC. Our feet were killing us, however I was not going to let this one slip by me. I managed to convince my wife Daisy and my mother that it was worth the extra steps.
Which made these steps even worse to climb. You'll feel like Rocky if you try to climb these steps after a day of DC tourism.
It doesn't take long to see the main attraction.
I always thought he'd be the color of marble like Abraham Lincoln the Lincoln Memorial but he's like a dark bronze here. While I was glad I got to see it, Jefferson's memorial doesn't quite compare to Abe Lincoln's.
