Fountain


After a rally next the the U. S. Supreme Court, but before the Climate March got underway, I went to get a bite to eat, passing through the Upper Senate Garden on my way.

"The main fountain is fabricated of Minnesota Pink granite, with a basin of Minnesota Green granite. The piers and other granite elements facing the Russell Senate Office Building terrace are made of Mount Airy granite, which blends visually with its surroundings. (www.aoc.org)"
