Edz and I had a fun morning. It's the 100 year anniversary of the National Parks System today, and to celebrate 1,000 people gathered on the lawn west of the Washington Monument and held up brown, white, and tan umbrellas in the shape of the NPS logo. We held two tan umbrellas in the top left corner. Can you see us?
It was a little more complicated than just showing up and walking around until we looked like a logo. The NPS laid out the grid, and after everyone signed in, they marched us single file out to the field. In all they used 1,020 umbrellas to make the "living arrowhead." It doesn't look it from the aerial photo, but it was a big crowd. 1,000 people is a lot of people!
