"The most important characteristic of the Washington Monument is its height. Jutting 555 feet into the skies of Washington, D.C., the white marbel-faced shaff is the tallest obelisk in the world. The second most notable characteristic of the monument is the crowd of visitors who, shifting from foot to foot, wait their turns to enter the monument. Elevators whisk visitors to the top for a panoramic view of the capital with its imposing buildings, tree-lined streets, and sparkling bodies of water. While most visitors choose to take the elevator back down to the base of the monument, some of the more vigorous opt to hike down the stone coil of 898 steps. one curious aspect of the monument is its interior climate. "Rain" resulting from condensation sometimes startles those who visit the upper levels of the monument during warm cloudless days.
