Washington Monument Repair – Time-Lapse Style

When 5.8 earthquake hit the DC Area in August of 2011 the icon of Washington had to close due to structural damage.  After over a year of repairs the Washington Monument is finally open again for people to tour and view the city from an interesting vantage point.

This 80-second time-lapse from EarthCam is pretty amazing.  It’s interesting to see the color difference near the bottom of the monument appears more pronounced now than before.
