Anyway, the reason I was even down at the Pentagon is because my parade got rained on. Ok, so it wasn't a parade; but I was going to go riding again. I've been wanting to get up to Great Falls (where the Potomac crosses the Fall Line) since I moved to DC, but I haven't quite made it yet. Anyway, I had today reserved for that, but I only made it about 2 miles out of Georgetown before the rain set in. I decided that I didn't want to be soaked and still have 15 miles to go, so I turned around. I still got a little wet getting back to the Foggy Bottom Metro stop, but I beat most of the rain. I guess elevated freeways are good for something after all; the Whitehurst was a giant umbrella for me today.
Anyway, having been out less than an hour, I decided to just go riding on the Metro. So I now have a few more photos to add to my website if I ever get it back up again.
I am still awed by the cross-vault at L'Enfant Plaza (Green/Yellow/Blue/Orange)

A Yellow Line train leaving National Airport for Downtown Washington. The National Cathedral is visible to the left of the train.

I really like the Arch II design better than the traditional Waffle (note the ceiling difference between this photo and Pentagon/Crystal City Stations, above). This is Columbia Heights, looking northbound.
