|Runners prepare for the Veterans Day 10K.|
We spent this morning running along the Tidal Basin and Potomac River in Washington, D.C. It was a great chance to spend time with our nations soldiers in one of my favorite cities.

|No matter when you visit, the Tidal Basin always makes for a great photographic opportunity.|
|This was my view during the race!|

Back in April, I was fortunate enough to see the Space Shuttle Discovery take it's last flight over DC before it reached it's final home, the Stephen F. Udvar-Hazy Center; part of the Smithsonian's National Air & Space Museum. Since that day, I've been dying to go see the shuttle up close. I finally made it the other day and I was not disappointed!!!!
|Just a couple photos from my initial series of photos on the shuttle.|
Below is a link to that blog:
|Heat tiles still scarred from the shuttle's last flight.|
|I was amazed to learn the white portion of the shuttle is actually quilted material!|
|Underneath the engines looking forward.|
|The Canada Arm.|
|You can actually see that the inside remains as it was after the last flight.|

I recently spent a couple days in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. I had never been there and didn't really know what to expect. The area I was in (Cudahy, which is South of downtown) didn't seem much different from other places I had been around the country and once I got away from the airport, had a nice, small-town feel. I thought I would put some shots from the area showing the non-Harley part of the city, Lake Michigan and the presence of California gangs in the area!
|I walked down Layton from my hotel to Lake Michigan. Didn't know how far it was going to be. Incidentally, it ended up being an 8 mile round trip!!!!|
|Yep, THAT'S the name.........|
|I passed several small bars and pubs.|
|Don't see this everyday, beer just hanging out on the sidewalk with nobody around!|
|This is indicative of most of the architecture in the area.|
|This was a long 4 miles to Lake Michigan!|
|Path down to the lake.|
|Lake Michigan (click on this shot to maximize it for the full effect.)|
|More Norteno Graffiti.|
|"SUR BK" = Sureno Blood Killer.|
All in all, a nice couple hours walking around in the Milwaukee area.
