This morning I gave another of my tours in Rock Creek Park of the carved stones removed from the U.S. Capitol Building.
I always enjoy these tours as the people are knowledgeable and curious,asking excellent questions
I had the pleasure of giving my tour of Capitol stones today to a very nice group of people. (c)Bill Lebovich,2016
