After touring the inside (of what we could see) we got to see all of the U.S. Capitol building from the outside.
The view from the Supreme Court side.
And the view from the more Washington Monument (which is pretty far away from here) side. Much better view on this side though.
Since a lot of the place is fenced off, it wasn't exactly crawling with tourists all over the place.
But I did see a religious Christian group set up near the bottom. While some don't take the danger seriously, but these guys really want to control Congress, not be located near the steps. The majority of these guys won't rest until the U.S. government is a right-wing Christian caliphate led by a long rule from Ayatollah Donald Trump.
