DC from the Air

I love the fact that there is usually a beautiful view of the capitol, the mall, and the monuments as you come into National.

This time I got an extra treat since it was a beautiful clear day, I was seated by a window on the left-hand side of the plane, and our landing was aborted right before we touched down (at about tree-top level) which gave me TWO chances to admire the view! (The second attempt to land was smooth as silk.)
