United States Capitol, Washington, DC

We arrived at the Capitol Visitors Center via the underground passageway from the Library of Congress after 4PM. The last of the full tours had just left. We were told they could give us a short tour of just the rotunda. Once we got into the rotunda we were just one group among many. I wanted a photo of the flag at the end of the hallway but the room was so full of people this was the best that I could do.
