Capitol Travels

State Capitols are in order of their visiting. Enjoy!

I grew up just 45 minutes away from Albany. I have never toured the Capitol but would like to. Access to the building always seemed too difficult for a State Capitol.

Albany, New York

I fell in love with this building upon arrival in Madison. As my friends there can attest, I would stop for a moment whenever the building came into view to simply enjoy it. It is also very easily accessible welcoming the public in to take part in their government.

A good friend of mine went to school at the University of Hartford. I did a drive by one day when I was visiting.

My roommate and I decided to go on Spring Break to….the Twin Cities! BRR is right! But I did get to snap this drive-by shot of the Capitol in St. Paul.

The Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and South Dakota shots were part of a  trip I was taking to visit my sister, who was living in Colorado at the time. The one week trip turned into three weeks.

This picture was taken the same day I finally got to see (years later) the firehouse the cast members of The Real World: Boston lived in.

My best friend was in Maine checking out a PA school. Naturally, I went up to help her out. On our way back to my home, we stopped in Concord, New Hampshire for a quick ‘jump out and snap’ of the Capitol.

The same friend was doing a rotation in small town New Hampshire. After I visited, I headed over to visit my sister in Vermont and did a drive by of the Capitol in Montpelier.

Then I moved to D.C. and took a couple dozen pictures of the Grandpappy of them all.

And on a visit from my dad, I made him drive me to Annapolis to get pictures of the two sides of that building.

First time to Texas, and I chose the summer. Crazy! But it felt good. I wanted to see if the “Austin is the Madison of the South” comparison was true. On a number of points it was, but on many more it was its own awesome Austin.
