This has to be my favorite place in Washington D.C. It is so relaxing and beautiful here. Robert E. Lee's house overlooking Arlington Cemetery.

Lee's house and land were confiscated by the Union Army during the Civil War. What irony that the first soldiers buried here were Union soldiers on a Confederate Generals land!
It wasn't raining this time, so we were able to take our time taking it all in. And there is a lot to take in; the beauty, the history, the architectural features, and the views.
The view from Lee's front yard. The Washington Memorial is on the left and the Jefferson Memorial is on the far right, with the Capital dome taking center stage.
