The Washington Monument
Scrolling through my album, I came across this picture from the recent trip to DC. I have found the Washington Monument to be fascinating, mostly because, when I was very young, perhaps only 6 or 7 years old, my father took us a trip to Florida. On the way, we stopped in Washington, and he and I walked up the stairs to the top of the Monument. I remember him insisting we do this because he had, when he lived in Virginia, had something to do with the actual construction of the Monument, it wasn't something I was anxious to tackle, even at that young age. I later studied history a bit and found this wasn't possible. I've been confused about that ever since.
