Happy Birthday America!

Happy 4th of July everyone! This photo was taken on the same trip as the one I released last Thursday. I was meandering aimlessly around the mall. “What is that building?”, I thought to myself as I walked generally toward it. I did one of those stop in your tracks sort of moves when I realized it was the Archives of the United States of America! It was almost closing time and I only had about 15 minutes to go through. No photography is allowed because of the delicate nature of the documents held inside. It is quite a thing to see in person the founding documents of our Nation. Though I serendipitous discovered the archives, I would highly recommend not missing them!
