today's travel itinerary was our most modest yet - we had to find a motel halfway to a town one hour away. this left lots of time for more capitol tourism. almost all museums in washington are free and the options felt endless so we chose to just find parking near the smithsonian buildings and wander. our meanderings were limited to the american history museum and natural history museum. above is a paper dress made by the scott paper factory in the 1960's. it immediatly reminded me of anabela and her new project. we happened upon lots of things (naturally). following is a random selections of things we saw.

museum of everything.
i could have spent weeks on end in the gem and mineral display (good call, autumn). that first giant quartz has to live in the shadow of that snotty little hope diamond. but i am more impressed by the quartz. there was even a whole section dedicated to minerals pulled out of the mines of our beloved bisbee.
