I spent the day in and around DC geocaching. My main goal was to locate a few caches in a couple of the alternate games. I walked over 10 miles and grabbed 11 caches in 3 different games today. This was one of three in the OCUS game I got along the way.

This was a very nicely placed cache. This was my first visit to this memorial. I spent some time looking around and will have to research what I found. I'm going to give this one a recommendation. Thanks for showing this to me. TNLN TFTC

I found this way before I registerd on the site.  Took lots of pictures.  So code word was easy.  Also did some High Dynamic Range work.  Very moving memorial.

Spending my "cached" Recommendations.  

I can not believe I'm the only one to have logged this cache!

2423.  OK, I've given everyone over 10 weeks to claim the FTF on this one, so i figured it was up for grabs. 

My last of 4 OCUS finds today.  I had a bit of trouble figuring out when I could park.  I thought I was going to get some unsolicited help from the Pentagon Security, after my second loop around.  There weren't many cars in the lot, so I ended up pulling into a spot near the memorial and waving down a security vehicle to ask.  I was hoping, they'd say, "Just park there, it's Saturday."  But, no.  The told me to get myself over to the other side of 395, even with my DoD decal.  On my hike back to the car, there was another security guard talking to some (wife / girlfriend?) and a car pulled alongside.  I could hear them ask and be told to just park there.  Sigh...

If you have a handicapped permit, there are about 5 or so spots right near the memorial, though.

I've been wanting to come by here for some time.  It was very moving.  Obviously, I will always remember where I was that morning and the details of  that day.  I walked around the entire memorial, but particularly noted the four people who were born the same year as myself.

Thanks!  I'll definitely be back.

(I forgot to rate the cache and wanted to redo my log, so I could.)
