Since I was there late, the sun was going down, while playing hide and seek with the clouds. For a little while the clouds over the Jefferson Memorial were lit up.
As I was leaving, the sun was setting, lighting up the clouds with bright reds and oranges behind the Washington Monument.
Bikeshare and scooters were popular ways to get around, the Capital Bikeshare station near the Washington Monument had loads of extra bikes to handle the crowds.
Today is cooler than yesterday, so if you go, dress warmly.
