Abraham Lincoln Monument

It was a VERY long walk from the Washington Memorial to see Abraham Lincoln's Memorial.  The Reflecting Pool is being restored - they are updating its water supply system to eliminate stagnant water by circulating water from the Tidal Basin rather than potable water from the city.  Paved walking paths will also be atted on the north and south sides of the pool to replace worn grass and prevent further erosion.  The total cost for this little project has been estimated at $30.5 million dollars.
