Recording History in 40 Minutes

On April 14th, StoryCorps' mobile Airstream rolled into DC for a 5-week stay.

It doesn't matter how long you've lived here, each year, a visit to see them, in all of their glory, is a must. While the ritual repeats each year, I typically try to find a new spot from which to gaze and take photos. There are the many vantage points from the Mall, but there are also dozens of gardens, parks, neighborhoods, and secret places to find the beauties. I love winter and I celebrate a good snow story.
