Washington, DC!


I went to our nation's capitol to see my hero Jon Stewart at his "Rally For Sanity" in October 2010. It's funny. I had my camera with me for two days at the rally and sightseeing in DC the next day, and the photos I want to share are of my friends, Tara and Meg. And this one really cool sculpture outside one of the Smithsonians. I did not know there was more than one Smithsonian.



We rode the moving sidewalks in this magic tunnel of light for about 30 minutes. Seriously.

August in Kentucky


During my brief interlude in Kentucky between Missouri and Maine, I embarked upon a small bit of tourism with my mom, and my aunt and uncle. Kentucky Horse Park has a very thorough (if nightmare-ishly lit) museum dedicated to the history of horse racing. It's got a lot of cool stuff. Like stuffed horses hanging from the ceiling!


And then, the JakeMonster hung out on the driveway while my mom packed my car. Let's face it, I was just there for moral support. She was the brains of the operation.
