WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington’s monuments, normally busy with tourists, are largely desolate as a blizzard continues to dump snow on the nation’s capital.

The steps of the Lincoln Memorial had not been cleared off Saturday morning and looked almost like a ski slope. At the Korean War Veterans Memorial, statues of soldiers were coated with snow. And at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, snow had settled on a statue of King, covering one of his shoulders and the top of his folded arms. A dusting of snow was on his forehead and nose.

Visibility was reduced. On an average day, visitors can see from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument and the Capitol. But on Saturday, the Washington Monument was not even visible from the memorial to the 16th president.
