D.C. 2013 - The Shutdown Tour
This picture is my favorite from the trip - on a drizzly, misty day, walking around the National Mall and seeing what we could see. Very few people were out, and we didn't see much in the way of barrier enforcement. So we did what we felt was appropriate, which was to pay our Vietnam veterans respect by walking through the Memorial instead of abiding by a ridiculous, entirely avoidable shutdown and staying out.
And you know what? The world did not come to an end.
