I feel very fortunate that I got to go on a tour of the U.S. Capitol Dome this week. It was a climb of 353 steps to get to the top but it was well worth it! The weather was fantastic and I took about 120 pictures, which you can view here. Comments
Your photos are awesome! I really appreciate your interest in the infrastructure of the dome. How is such a tour arranged? Posted by Jamie Murdock @ 4/15/09 4:05 PM
Thanks Jamie! I believe to get a dome tour you can contact your Senator's office and get information from them about it. I'm not sure how often/under what circumstances they do them. Posted by Matt Woodward @ 4/16/09 9:16 PM
I was in DC a couple of weeks ago and saw some tourists up on the Capitol Dome, and I wondered how they got up there. Now I know. Thanks for the info!
