So I may be really biased BUT, I love the State of Washington's capitol building. Especially in the spring. There are a number of wonderful spots on the grounds to sit and calmly ponder the weighty questions. Of course once you step inside during session and encounter the hundreds of voices bouncing off three stories of marble, calm is out and frenzy is in. It requires a weighty building to keep all that decision making energy contained. If you are out and about in Olympia, WA this summer, stop up on the hill and tour the capitol and grounds. It's worth it.
