Thomas Jefferson's Monticello - Wordless Wednesday

Monticello, the House
(Original Images and Text, Copyright (c) 2012 Cynthia Shenette) Last summer my family and I spent some time in Virginia on vacation.  While we were there we visited Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.  I thought I'd post a few photos from our trip since Monday was Presidents' Day.  Enjoy!

I've never seen Monticello, so it was fun to look at these lovely photos.

Happy Blogoversary! Love your photos of Monticello. I remember being there and the wine cellar and the gardens were my favorites.
