Air Force Memorial
with Arlington Cemetery on the left and the Washington Monument near the center of the picture. Picture taken from Arlington (nowhere near the Capital Crescent Trail I just took these photos next on my camera)
The Capital Crescent Trail goes along the Potomic River, through Arlington, Virginia and Washington DC (on the C&O towpath). I hiked first along the Arlington, Virginia side for the Potomac (starting at the north end of the Teddy Roosevelt Island Parking lot) then crossing over at Chain Bridge and heading back down the Capital Crescent trail and over the Key Bridge to and making a loop hike out of the hike.
