Up the Alpine Path

This is probably my favorite photo I have taken while living in Virginia. The Jefferson Memorial and the Tidal Basin are my favorites here in DC. Of course, there's been so much to love here. It's been a great boon to my journey along the Alpine Path.

"Then whisper, blossom, in thy sleep
  How I may upward climb
The Alpine path, so hard, so steep,
  That leads to heights sublime;
How I may reach that far-off goal
  Of true and honoured fame,
And write upon its shining scroll
  A woman's humble name."
~ Lucy Maud Montgomery
