Inspecting the Quake Damaged Washington Monument

Day 3 of the inspection of the damage caused by last month's 5.8 earthquake at the Washington Monument.    It's become quite an attraction both for locals and tourists.   I visited mid-day Thursday, with a lot of clouds in the sky, didn't make for the best photographs.

This woman didn't see the blocked off area and had to be escorted away from the Monument.

Great pictures, and they show a specific moment in Washington history.
