As you'll hear me and many others say, there is just so much to see and do in this city that it becomes nearly impossible to visit all within a reasonable amount of time. And so it was for this most visible monument though I do have pictures to share with you!

When I was around 5 or 6, I went up in the Washington Monument with my two sisters. We took the elevator up and the stairs back down... It goes to show how foolish we are as children, eh? I forget just how many thousands of steps there were, but I know there'd likely be too many now... I'd like to go again sometime however, as I remember the view from there being spectacular!
