    Nearly three years after an earthquake rattled the East Coast, and extensively damaged one of Washington's most iconic monuments, the Washington Monument reopens Monday, May 12.


    On Saturday, the National Park Service opened its doors to media for a sneak peek, to survey the renovations (and recall the spectacular views).
