One of the best ways to get from the northern end of D.C. to the downtown/National Mall area is via Beach Drive to Rock Creek Parkway. This was the view from my car the other day. As you reach the point where Beach meet Rock Creek, you pass under the Calvert Street and Connecticut Avenue Bridges. They form graceful arches over the roadway and provide a beautiful, manmade frame for nature.
By the way--on a different topic completely, it's 11:30 a.m. here in Washington and we're having a heat wave. The temperature right now: 71 degrees Fahrenheit/22 degrees Celcius. I wouldn't mind the heat so much if it wasn't humid, too. That's the part I can't stand: the humidity. Thankfully, by tomorrow we'll be back down in the 50s/10s and by Sunday it's suppose to be in the 30s/-1s!
