This night we rented a couple bikes and rode to the Jefferson Monument, then walked to the F.D.R Memorial. This was by far the most naturalistic an beautiful memorial we have seen. It was full of waterfalls, foliage, and very natural looking stones. The entire memorial never reached more than about 30 feet tall but sprawled over a large amount of land and seemed to go on and on with waterfalls, natural stone, and amazing quotes from F.D.R that most of our current officials in office would do well to read.


I would write a bunch about the memorial but I found this great site of a disabled persons and her wonderful perspective of the memorial from a wheelchair. A perspective that F.D.R himself shared. LINK
