I was visiting the Lincoln Memorial and decided to walk behind the monument and follow the road around to the Potomac. The bridge is "guarded" by 2 gilded statues and the view across the river, as well as up and down, is great. Watch out for the busy roads if you are walking here.

The mighty Potomac river flows through Washington DC when you watch in flow pass it's a sight to see. You stand next to it or drive over a bridge over it you get great views of Washington DC.

The Potomac runs through the heart of the DC Metro area. It's lined with parkland and biking and hiking paths. Lots of monuments along the way. Lots of grand and non-so grand bridges.

Of course the river itself is wonderful if you add a bit of history and the bike trails and walking paths it's a wonderful afternoon.
