Today’s Photo:  The Washington Monument

In 1848, construction began on a monument to the United States of Americas first president, George Washington.  Construction was stopped during the civil war and when it started back, a different color of stone was used.  In 2011 an earthquake in Virginia cause the monument to be closed until a future date.  This shot was in April 2011 and the earthquake was August.  I need to go back and see if it changed enough to notice.
