Washington DC & New York City

March 18, 2017  -  March 22, 2017

Today our tour began. We are a consolidated group including Barb Koester's Foley, Minnesota "Falcon" group and Ryan Nelson's Albuquerque, New Mexico "Mountain Lion" group. The Falcons arrived a few days ago and enjoyed the sights of Washington on their own. Today they visited Smithsonian Museums before meeting up with the Mountain Lions after visiting the National Air and Space Museum. The Mountain Lions arrived today from Albuquerque, then visited the National Archives before visiting various museums. Together, we visited the Jefferson Memorial and the Martin Luther King Memorial. We walked along M Street in Georgetown before dining at "Pinstripes." Despite the rain, we visited several sights after dinner: a photo stop at the White House, the beautiful World War II Memorial, and the Vietnam, Lincoln and Korean War Memorials. By the time we arrived at our hotel in Herndon, Virginia, we were ready for bed! [Thanks to Teresa Chavez and Raul Herrera for photos!]
