State Capitol #3

Tuesday, May 29 - Three state capitols in three days!  We're definitely a fan of the Alabama State Capitol.  The oldest one we've seen so far, and nicely positioned at the top of a hill in downtown Montgomery, Alabama.  This was also the first Confederate capitol.

We really timed this one right, and got it in some great light as the sun was setting.  We definitely liked this one, although it's hard to say it was the favorite so far, since they've been so different: Louisiana is the art deco monument to Huey Long, Mississippi is traditional and strong, and Alabama is regal and genteel.

We walked all the way around the capitol building, and found some pretty prime parking spots in the back:
