A Saturated View of the District
Rounding the District of Columbia at altitude, we are given a great gift as we peer into the Pierre L’Enfant’s urban planning masterpiece…We departed the earth during the golden hour and ascended back into broad daylight. Beneath us, we catch the gleam of the sandstone as the western facades of buildings and monuments reflect the warm colorful light from the setting sun. In this light, we are able to clearly see the patterns of its gridded streets with their overlaid diagonals and ovals. One could spend a day, or a week, or a year studying the details of the District, but we have but a moment as we make a tight turn to the south and accelerate toward our destination.
