Washington Monument

Tara, Jeremy, and Madilyn in front of the Washington Monument.

The Washington Monument, made of marble, granite, and bluestone gneiss, is both the world's tallest stone structure and the world's tallest obelisk, standing 555 feet 5 1/8 inches tall. The monument was closed when we went because it had been damaged in an earthquake.
