Gosh, I don't know if I can even find the right words to describe the Washington Monument. Being my first time in DC, this was one of the places on top of my bucket list. Unfortunately when I went, it was closed off to the public but it was still a sight to admire from the distance.

I can't say that I have strong feelings or memories about going to see the Washington Monument. What you see is what you get basically. It's a big white obelisk in the center of the city.

It's an impressive symbol, almost domineering, that commemorates George Washington in the National Mall. The monument brings back thoughts of Freemasonry. Is it just a pillar or is it something more? If viewed from space at the right angle of sunlight, will this beloved pillar point us toward our ultimate destiny or perhaps to some really shiny buried treasure? Probably not. It's still cool, regardless, especially when viewed from the top steps of the Lincoln Memorial at night.

unfortunately closed for renovation and completely encased. But it is still an impressive monument that can be seen from everywhere: the Potomac, the Lincoln memorial, ...

Like most buildings in D.C., it's well known enough that you'll probably visit it, but not gain much of anything new from the experience. The statue itself is, as the picture suggests, long and thin, and is a good landmark in the city. The surrounding area is heavy on other noteworthy sights, so you might as well stop by.
