This is the stairway leading to the west entrance of the State Capitol of Missouri in Jefferson City. The day was absolutely gorgeous. But any day in the fifties is nice in the middle of February.
Jefferson City sits on the banks of the Missouri River. In fact, the Capitol building is on a hill overlooking the river. It may be one of the best located Capitol buildings in the country from what I have seen. Of course I am a little biased in my opinion.
As far as the picture goes I wish I had taken a little more time to get everything straight. I was in a hurry as my wife had finished her pictures and I had two teenagers impatiently waiting in the car!
