A view of the Washington Monument from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. With the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool in foreground, it provides a magnificent reproduction of the monument and a cloud-laden sky.

The monument has been closed indefinitely due to structural damage from an earthquake on August 23, 2011.

America the Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!

America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
