Pre-Tour Page 4

     Troops 1417 and 1418 spent two days touring Washington DC before arriving at the Jamboree. Two days is not enough time to see it all, but it is enough time to see enough to make you want to come back some day when you have more time. We also had the opportunity to spend a few hours at Mount Vernon, George Washington's estate, a few more monuments, and the Smithsonian Museums.
     The pictures on this page are just a few taken during the second day of our tour around Washington DC., the last day before we arrived at the National Jamboree.

Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take pictures inside of the house at Mount Vernon.

However, we were allowed to take some pictures of the items in the out buildings around the place.

At the Smithsonian Museum there was a replica of the atom bomb used during World War II.

Even television and movie paraphernalia was on display in the Smithsonian Museum.

The Smithsonian is not just one museum but is several museum set around the National Mall.

The Washington Monument was built at one end of the National Mall.

At the other end end of the Mall is the Congressional Building.

The Scouts measure their hands to the hands in one part of the Franklin D. Roosevelt monument.

The Roosevelt Monument was very impressive and included several quotes from FDR.

One of the statues at the FDR memorial included FDR's little dog by his side.

We walked from the FDR memorial to the Jefferson Memorial.

The Scouts from Melrose pose for a shot in front of the statue of Jefferson.

This is one of the quotes by Thomas Jefferson that was included in his memorial.

Several troop members take a short break while at the Jefferson Memorial site.

It is the morning of the Jamboree. We stopped at a Walmart to pick up a few supplies.
