Space Shuttle EnterpriseThe Space Hangar wasn't yet open to the public when we were there, but we could still see its star attraction -- the Space Shuttle Enterprise. This shuttle never flew into space, but was used for in-atmosphere testing and proof of concept. It is currently being restored, after which time the Space Hangar will open, along with many other Space artifacts.

US Botanical Center ConservatoryThis picture is actually not from the zoo, but at the US Botanical Center Conservatory near the Capitol building. But, it seemed to fit in well with all the animal pictures. We only had about 45 minutes at the center, but it was a beautiful place and featured many lovely plants.

US Navy MemorialWhile visiting the US Navy Memorial, we were pleasantly surprised to find the Navy Band setting up for a free concert later that evening. We stayed for the concert, which was a great experience. This picture shows the "Lone Sailor" which is a main feature of this memorial plaza.
