This was an interesting place to watch Legislators, and aides come for a smoke break. It is an outdoor courtyard which resembles the rotunda. I had more than one person marvel at my imagination for making this up. It was very hard to convince them that I did not. It exists. Though they had been to the Capitol many times, most visitors don't venture far from the circular drive on the north side. Vehicular traffic is entering and exiting from this side, so it is understandable. I have always found the "peoples" lawn and building complex fascinating.
