Capitol Moonrise

The sun fell in the afternoon sky and Thomas Crawford's Statue of Freedom watched the moon rise high above the Capitol Rotunda in Washington, D.C. The 15,000-pound, 19'6" tall Statue of Freedom stands watch over the nation's capital from her 288-foot perch. Despite the bitter cold (with windchill that would send most San Diegans scrambling for cover), the city was awash with a warm glow. More on the Statue of Freedom from the Architect of the Capitol.
