The Washington Monument~


As you may have heard the 5.8 earthquake in 2011,
shook the very tall, intricately built
making it unsafe for visitors.

Unlike most buildings, there is no internal framework,
and all of those rocks balanced on each other shifted,
making the structure unstable.


Currently there is a scaffold built around it so the 
workers can repair the monument.
The construction zone has really changed the look!


Even in its bulky shape, it still oversees the entire mall


 including the WWII Memorial


and the Reflecting Pond.....
