Baton Rouge, Louisiana

We went to visit the Old State Capitol Building in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The photo above is of the beautiful stain glass windows in the ceiling. Also, just this year they were doing remodeling, and they found a hidden room behind one of the walls that had been converted into a cell during the civil war. It's not part of the main tour, and only available to show upon request, so if you're going to visit, make sure to ask about the cell in the "dungeon!"
Outside of the Capitol building they have this beautiful Virginia Live Oak tree, which we enjoyed climbing on with the kids. I want one of these trees in my yard! Too bad they take 300 years to get like this!
