5:45 A.M Commute on #66 and #95 Part I

5:45 A.M. Commute on Interstate #66 and Interstate #95
Part I
Heading east and chasing the rising sun which will set a record for June 24, 2010.
100 degrees was recorded at Ronald Reagan National Airport.
There were lots of cars and vans and trucks all heading east with us. These drivers were mainly commuters heading off on their daily commute to work. Jack was driving in the far left lane which is reserved for cars with at least two passengers and for motorcyclists. No, we were not riding a motorcycle on interstate #66

Jack and I pass on the left the above ground subway lines for the Vienna metro station.

Then later on our right we drive by a section of Arlington National Cemetery which currently is stewed in controvesy over poor records management.

Almost immediately after passing Arlington Cemetery Jack exits to the right and we see that enormous beige building coming into view.

This is the world famous Pentagon and now we are heading south on the beltway around D.C. and then on to interstate #95.

As soon as you pass the Pentagon building on the left you can look off to your right and begin to see the three gleaming spires of the Air Force Memorial. This is a nice place to tour. I wish my brother Carl who was in the U.S. Air Force in the '50s could see this.

Come back tomorrow for Part II of our big day yesterday.
