|can you see it?|
|blurry, I know, but it captured the moment|
|Isn't it gorgeous?|
|we pause along the way by an enormous thing of flowers.|
I laid down there, just to savor the moment; there in the grass, listening to the sound of someone mowing the capitol lawn. Then I sat up quickly and turned around because I couldn't keep my eyes off the beauty. The sky was clear blue, the trees were bright in the sunshine, and a pleasant breeze played with our National flag. The tall windows shone in the morning light, and the numerous pillars had a stolid beauty.

|The starting point--the compass rose in the middle of the floor|
We walked on through arches and past ornate pillars, some of which were carved with ears of corn. We saw where the supreme court used to meet: all ancient tables, and whale-oil lamps. There were no electric lights in that room; that's it on the top right.
|And that's all for the capitol~ (See it yourself if you can!)|
