    Reflecting Pool

    Very pretty and easy to photograph as it is your view from the Lincoln Memorial. Nice shaded walkways on either side of it. Tour buses start unloading around 8:45am so early morning is you best bet for a more serene visit. Fun people watching site otherwise as it anchors one end of the 2 mile Mall.
