    Default Washington Monument

    Just looking at this page I keep coming up with the Washington Monument.
    Rusful is the monument and the puddle is the reflecting pool. I also
    see the word Hill in the black cracks at the top, written backwards lliH...capitol hill?
    anyone have any thoughts?

    Welcome, Trovee!

    I can see where you might come up with your idea. However,
    before you pursue this idea (or any others) further, please read the entire

    I see what you're talking about concerning references to the Washington monument, but feniangirl is right - it's a potential terrorist target, highly secure, and therefore not terribly likely for a token location - it would cause too much trouble to hide one there. That said... There are at least 2 other similar monuments in the country that I can think of off the top of my head - #1 the Bunker Hill memorial in Boston, which is located right by the Charles River (there's your water), and #2 the Battle of Bennington (I think that's what it's called) monument in Bennington VT.
    They would likely not be such targets, and therefore better token locations. Try a Google search on both monuments and see what you think...

    For the last 6 months, the W.M. has been fenced off while they improve the security (to be completed in the Spring). The hill it sits on never had any trees - but the area between the W.M. and Lincoln Memorial is full of trees - along with the WWII memorial, the Viet Nam memorial, reflecting pool, etc.

    I did a token search in the D.C. area a couple of months ago and was floored by how many trees there are (Lydon Memorial Grove/Ladybird Park). Walked thru the above-mentioned area last week, not looking for tokens but it's always on my mind lately. Tons of places to hide, but the security situation is always an issue.
