Two years ago, I had the opportunity to stay here and I took cameras and the tripod with me to capture the beauty of this place. The top photo shows the beautiful entrance to the hotel with the mission bells over the archway. The photo below shows one of the roof top patio areas with a peaceful reflecting pool and pots overflowing with flowers. All of that is surrounded by the arches and domes of the mission architecture.
The Mission Inn has of course hosted many famous guests from presidents to rock stars. Richard Nixon and his wife Pat were married here and Ronald and Nancy Reagan honeymooned here. Even Miss Piggy is on the VIP list of guests.
I have many photos from here showing to beautiful architecture so I'll post more in the future.

Sitting atop Capitol Hill is this grand building where the United States Congress meets. Historically, a lot of things have been accomplished in this building. Unfortunately, not much was accomplished there in the year 2013. I took the above photo standing on a balcony of the “Newsium” the new museum of news in Washington DC. The view from there was spectacular.
This photo was taken from a closer vantage point.
