Three summers ago I visited the Washington Monument, but I did not get to climb it (and unfortunately, they no longer allow these climbs). One of my future goals in life is to revisit Washington D.C. and hopefully be able to climb this monument. It seems very tall and it has approximately 898 steps. In my mind, climbing this monument is like struggling over an obstacle. It’s a long, tough, and tiring climb, but when you get to the top, the feeling is rewarding just like when you solve that tough problem.
