Wednesday, Oct. 1 | By Hannah Dellinger
You can now check out the views from the Washington Monument with out making the drive all the way out to D.C.

Today the National Park Service announced it's new webcam that sits inside of a pre-existing hole in the monument's pyramidion. Viewers can see new majestic views from 500 feet over the nation's capital live from on your computer or mobile device anytime you wish.

The webcam shows views of the WWII Memorial, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial and the Reflecting Pool.

The installation was also put in just in time so that viewers can see the new Rodríguez-Gerada’s facescape, “Out of Many, One,” a month-long National Portrait gallery exhibit. The piece is made up of 2,000 tons of sand and 800 tons of soil.

This month-long National Portrait Gallery exhibit required 2,000 tons of sand and 800 tons of soil to create.
