Sightseeing in Washington, D.C. - Visting Orchid Exhibition at the U.S. Botanic Garden

The National Museum of the American Indian, set on nearly 4.5 acres, opened in 2004; it's a living memorial to Native Americans and their traditions.

We found another lone blossoming cherry tree on our way to a late afternoon visit to see "Orchid Symphony" at the U.S. Botanic Garden, which has been open to the public since 1850.

The quiet oasis featuring gorgeous orchids from around the world was the perfect ending to a busy day of sightseeing.  The next day we planned to set up for AwesomeCon, where Doug was a featured guest.
