Passport to your Parks in DC

Having earlier this summer discovered the "Passport to Your National Parks" program, this blogger has enjoyed collecting a few stamps when he happens to pass by or visit a park.

The Washington, DC area has a wealth of stamps, actually, but only scattered on-line guidance as to what is to be found where.  In short, there are a ton of stamps to get in DC, but it can be hard to know where to get them!

If you know of a stamp hotspot besides the four I list here, do please comment and let me know!

So, as of this summer of 2013, these are the stamps available at these locations around metro Washington [all stamps are presumed red Capital Area stamps, except those with a *, which would be blue Mid-Atlantic offerings]:
